Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department announcement.
Today, you’ll see some changes to our COVID-19 reporting. We’re streamlining our case data, and we will now include some vaccination numbers to this report every 2 weeks.
You can still find all our COVID-19 data on our dashboard at tpchd.org/covid19cases.
We’ll continue to monitor all our local numbers and update data we share to make sure it’s useful to you and your family.
On Nov. 16:
- Our current COVID-19 7-day case rate per 100,000 is 50.4 for Nov. 1-7.
- Our current 7-day hospitalization rate per 100,000 is 1.1 for Oct. 30-Nov. 5.
