If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a death, those deaths are not included in the WDH count."

Deti revealed that deaths occurred in Campbell County, Carbon County, Fremont County, Goshen County, Laramie County, Natrona County, Park County, Sheridan County, Sweetwater County, Teton County, Washakie County, and Weston County.
