Thank you to our medical laboratory professionals 

This week is the 45th Annual Medical Laboratory Professionals Week. Medical lab professionals are some of the unsung, behind-the-scenes folks who are critical to the medical community. These lab professionals across Washington state and the nation are processing tests every day, including COVID-19 tests. There is no better time to celebrate these thousands of dedicated workers to support the health of patients and communities across our country. 

In our local Kitsap County response to COVID-19, more than 120 different labs have performed tests for Kitsap residents over this past year. We thank the medical laboratory professionals who are working hard behind the scenes to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and recognize critical work. Learn more about this work on the Kitsap County Emergency Management blog. #KitsapResponds
