Pierce County is Open for Business - As COVID-19 Outbreak Continues to Evolve, We're Here to Help

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, we’re here to help businesses access the resources and information they need. Businesses must continue to operate in the County and we encourage our community to support small businesses while observing social distancing recommendations.

Protecting your customers and workers is top of mind, and the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department provides these recommendations.

In addition, as you experience impacts or have questions regarding your workforce, the Employment Security Department has guidelines for workers and businesses as well as a reference guide to programs available in the state under different scenarios.

We’ll update you as soon as the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program goes into effect to assist small businesses that have been severely impacted by COVID-19. In addition, the Washington State Governor’s Office is compiling resources to support businesses, including the State Dept. of Revenue’s relief for taxpayers and insurance information from the Office of the Insurance Commissioner.

Bottom line, we’re here to connect Pierce County businesses with the resources and information they need at any time, and especially in challenging times. If you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to Gary Wescott at (253) 798-6916.
