Health District Delays Taking Action on COVID Mandates
Elected officials on Kitsap County’s board of health have received swaths of emails opposing the idea of local COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and nearly all of the hour of public comment at the board’s Tuesday meeting was filled with opposition to the idea and some opposing vaccines generally.

The possibility of local vaccine requirements had been raised as an option by Dr. Gib Morrow, health officer for the Kitsap Public Health District, and the health board had an initial discussion on the topic at a special meeting last week where they, for the most part, shied away from the idea.

At Tuesday's meeting, Bremerton Mayor Greg Wheeler proposed a motion that would signal the health board wasn’t immediately going to pursue a vaccine requirement for patrons of businesses and wasn’t going to push for a requirement for employees of local government to be vaccinated, while simultaneously endorsing the importance of vaccinations, but the board eventually opted to push a discussion to a future meeting.

Should I Make the
E-Commerce Jump with
My Business?
These days it feels like everything is online and if you don’t have an online presence you’re being left in the dust. But there are plenty of businesses existing only on a Facebook page. Some feel like they don’t have the time to create a website while others don’t even know where to start. 

With the retail landscape having changed dramatically over the last year due to pandemic restrictions, now might be the right time for your business to add an e-commerce component.
