On April 15, the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (TPCHD) confirmed 23 new cases in Pierce County and reassigned cases among counties. The county total is now 1,022 cases.
The department is reporting one new death, a woman in her 90s with underlying health conditions from the Edgewood/Fife/Milton area. The county total is now 24 deaths.
County daily case totals can change as we get new information during disease investigation. Adjustments can include correcting duplicate data, assigning a case to another county or learning a test was a false positive.
TPCHD can’t report test result numbers or rates at this time because the state data system is experiencing delays. Read the Department of Health’s statement on the delay in data posting.
