Many of our oldest adults live in long-term care facilities or other congregate care settings. The department works with these facilities to minimize the spread of disease and protect residents. Read more in the department’s blog post. There is also added information about the number of positive cases at Pierce County care facilities. Check it out on the Pierce County cases page.
The department continues to work with the state Department of Health to report test result numbers and will report reliable data once it is available.
