COVID-19 - Declaration of Emergency

The Town of Steilacoom like the State, Pierce County, and many other local governments, declared a state of emergency concerning the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. This was done to more quickly and easily mobilize staff and supplies needed to respond to the existence of COVID-19 cases in the Town of Steilacoom, and in reality, some cases are expected in Town eventually.

This measure was requested as part of the Town’s precautionary measures, and residents of Steilacoom should not be alarmed by this action which is part of the Town’s on-going response to the COVID-19 matter.

The declaration of a state of emergency will help align the Town’s response to the outbreak in coordination with state and county efforts. It enables the Town to activate emergency plans, prioritize response measures, and allocate funds to deploy additional personnel as needed. It also facilitates the use of mutual aid agreements and authorizes the Town to obtain vital supplies, equipment and services outside of usual purchasing or contracting regulations and apply for reimbursement of eligible expenses.

If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact Paul Loveless, Town Administrator, at 253.983.2074.
