Reporting And Data

COVID-19 Deaths

Latest Update: September 14, 2020

Reporting Information

All providers of health care, health care facilities, medical examiners, coroners and funeral homes must report immediately to their local and state health department, each death that is caused by, associated with or related to COVID-19 infection consistent with the CDC criteria. This includes information on the immediate cause of death, such as a heart attack or pneumonia, as well as any underlying disease. This CDC Guidance for Certifying Death Due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) recommended reporting deaths where the patient has tested positive or, in the absence of testing, “if the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty.”
