A Statement From Mayor Victoria Woodards on 
Rollback of Pierce County to Phase 2 


TACOMA, Wash. -- Today’s news is certainly disappointing for Tacoma and Pierce County as it will have notable impacts on our community and our local businesses. I understand that this decision is based in data, and we have the power to change the outcomes in our community before the next evaluation. To be successful, we must remember that we are a resilient community. We have changed the tide on COVID-19 cases before in Pierce County, and we must believe that we can do it again. While I hope everyone eligible will continue to get vaccinated, we also need to be diligent in masking up, social distancing, and following state guidelines if we are going to slow the spread.
