Kitsap County has established an information line to address questions and concerns raised by the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak (COVID-19) and that phone number is 2-1-1. This resource is designed to supplement the commonly asked questions and answers about COVID-19 already posted on the Kitsap Public Health District’s website: http://kcowa.us/COVID19
These calls will go to the local 211 Call Center in Bremerton. The phone lines are currently staffed from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. This call center is designed to help the public navigate the difficult challenges this outbreak has produced but cannot provide guidance for those wanting to be tested for the virus or in need of medical care. The Kitsap Public Health District encourages people who feel they should be evaluated for COVID-19 to contact their regular healthcare provider.
As a reminder, DO NOT call Kitsap 911 with questions about COVID-19. This vital resource is only for life-threatening emergencies and enables our first responders to provide critical and timely life-saving responses.
