Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department announcement.
COVID-19 outbreaks at Pierce County long-term care facilities are increasing and resident’s health is on everyone’s mind. We created a new toolkit to help LTCF residents and their families navigate things like:
- COVID-19 outbreaks.
- Keeping hospitalizations low.
- Preparing for future outbreaks.
- Encouraging residents’ health in other ways.
Find quick links for help and the latest updates from our state and federal partners with the new toolkit.
