COVID-19 Temporary Care Centers

I have been in communication with the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department and the County’s Emergency Management Director in addressing the concern people have about where to go if they have been exposed to COVID-19 but are not sick. We will be setting up Temporary Care Centers.

Temporary Care Centers are effective and essential to slow the spread of disease and save lives. Pierce County will need several temporary care centers to house vulnerable Pierce County residents exposed to COVID-19 who don’t have a safe place to stay for the14-day quarantine period.

We continue our work to identify assessment and recovery sites in West and East Pierce County. Click on the embedded image for detailed information.
