New COVID-19 cases confirmed in Kitsap county.

The Kitsap Public Health District issued a statement in which they confirmed approx 40 new Coronavirus cases in the previous 24 hours, bringing the total to 5,334 since the pandemic began in March in Kitsap county.

In the previous two weeks, the Kitsap county’s COVID-19 cases rate per 100,000 residents has immensely dropped to 129.7, meaning the county is still over a “high level” of coronavirus activity, per state guidelines.

The health district said, “while a significant number of new cases are still reported each day, our team has noted an overall decline in cases since early January.”
