Kitsap Public Health confirms second COVID-19 case on Bainbridge Island

Please see the Tuesday, March 10 update below from Kitsap Public Health regarding a second positive COVID-19 case on Bainbridge Island. Read the full advisory here


The Kitsap Public Health District has been notified of a second positive COVID-19 test for a Kitsap County resident. The person who tested positive — a Bainbridge Island resident in their 70s — is in isolation.

Kitsap Public Health is working as quickly as possible to notify people identified as having been in close contact with the affected individual. Close contacts will be instructed to stay home, per Department of Health guidelines.

The new case is linked to the COVID-19 case reported on Sunday, March 8.

The Department of Health is no longer classifying positive tests that have not been confirmed by a second test as "presumptive positives." Both Kitsap cases are considered positive.
