COVID-19 transmission is spread throughout Pierce County. We encourage you to follow the Governor’s statewide order to stay home. Exceptions to this order include essential activities like getting groceries or medical care or serving in an essential job like healthcare or childcare.
These numbers, including the location of cases or deaths, may change as we investigate and get more information. In response to your feedback, we brought back the table displaying total cases in each region of Pierce County. We also embedded the case count map on our web page, so you no longer need to leave our site to view it.
Most recent numbers
On April 2, we confirmed 80 new cases, bringing our total to 498 cases and 7 deaths.
University of Washington Virology Lab, Washington Public Health Lab, private labs and healthcare providers now provide test results for Pierce County residents. As of March 28, they had tested 5,299 of our residents. Department of Health is still working to fix its disease reporting system. Until that happens, you will see a lag in our case count reporting, and we won’t be able to update our testing numbers. You will likely see a spike in our numbers when the system is back online.
Read the Department of Health's statement on the delay in data posting.
