Spokane County COVID-19 Data
COVID-19 Mortality Data
The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is adopting national guidance from the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists issued in November of 2022, which recommends counting COVID-19 deaths based on death certificate data. This change applies to COVID-19 death reporting from Jan. 1, 2023, to the present. It means that DOH only counts a COVID death based on death certificate data, and no positive SARS-CoV2 test result is needed.
DOH implemented this change to improve the accuracy of COVID-19 death counts, which have been affected by a shift to more at-home testing that is typically not reported, changes in how people seek health care for COVID-related illness, and a decrease in the volume of tests reported to DOH. This change also aligns with how other states report COVID-19 deaths.
Due to this reporting change affecting historical data, the Spokane County COVID-19 dashboard will no longer include mortality data going forward. The purpose of this change is to reduce data discrepancies between DOH and data provided by SRHD. Please visit the DOH Dashboard for the most accurate data aligned with the revised standard.
