Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department press release.
We know COVID-19 outbreaks in schools are a concern for everyone—especially parents. Starting today, you’ll see a difference in how we report them. Instead of reporting where outbreaks happen within Pierce County, we’ll report how often they happen in different school settings. The data might surprise you. You can read more about the changes in this Your Reliable Source blog.
