How Can I Obtain a Death Certificate?

The Washoe County Regional Medical Examiner's Office does not issue Death Certificates.

Death Certificates, when completed, may be obtained through the Washoe County Health District's Vital Records Office.  Click the logo below to be taken to the Vital Records Office website.

Depending on the circumstances of death and type of investigation, Death Certificates may require ten to twelve weeks for completion.
