For Whole30 purposes, nitrates and nitrites are not ruled out. Whether you choose to have them or not is up to you. Celery powder is used in curing meats because it is naturally rich in nitrates.

Since this question usually comes up in the context of bacon (although it might applied to other cured meats as well), I'd encourage you to read the Bacon Manifesto for a little more information on this. It doesn't address the nitrate/nitrite question directly but might give you other points to think about.
