On May 17, 2023, Washington State Department of Health implemented a new definition that changes how we track COVID-19 deaths on our dashboards and in published reports. The new definition for COVID-19 deaths affects deaths starting on January 1st, 2023, and results in some adjustments to death counts and rates. The new definition is based on national standards for COVID-19 death classification and will be applied moving forward.
