Your health and our staff’s health are our top priorities. Everyone in Pierce County needs to practice social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak.

That’s why we suspended most in-person services at our office. This closure will last through March 30, 2020. We will keep you updated as we reassess the situation.

Many services are still available online.

Pierce County Auditor services are no longer at the Health Department until further notice. Please visit their website for more information.

Treatment Services and Birth and Death Records in-person services are still available at our office.

Your health and the health of those you care about are important to us.

We want to protect our most vulnerable populations. Those at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 include: 

  • People with weakened immune systems from medical conditions or medical treatment. 
  • Adults over age 60. 
  • Pregnant women. 

If you are at a higher risk, we recommend you take extra measures to distance yourself from other people and stay at home. Please consider the well-being of all customers and staff and use our online services instead of visiting the Health Department.

Help protect your family.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, or the inside of your elbow. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Stay home when you are sick.
