CORONER vs. PA DOH Death Count:
The Coroner’s report of deaths is an accurate report of the deaths that actually occurred within Westmoreland County, whether that be within the hospital, a nursing home, or residence.

The reason the PA DOH is reporting more deaths is because under a pandemic their reporting is done via residency. Therefore even if the death occurred in a hospital or nursing home in another county, as long as that individual still maintains a street address in Westmoreland County it gets added to our County’s total.
