Thursday morning COVID-19 update from the Virginia Department of Health:

571 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 1 from Wednesday.

88,904 Virginia cases — up 911 since Wednesday. The total includes 85,546 confirmed and 3,358 “probable” infections.

2,141 deaths statewide — up 16 from Wednesday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 2,035 and “probable” in 106.

1,091,615 diagnostic tests statewide — up 18,152 since Wednesday. Over the past seven days, 7.2 percent of those tests were positive, trending upward.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 7,786 as of Thursday, up 48 since Wednesday.

But, the health department notes that its hospitalization figure — based on status at the time each case gets investigated — “underrepresents” the actual total.

Since the pandemic began, 11,728 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,357 infected patients Thursday — up 7 from Wednesday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 13,085.

Virginia hospitalizations for COVID-19 peaked at 1,625 patients on May 8.

Healthcare providers and laboratories report statistics to the state as of 5 p.m. each day. The health department updates its report the following morning.

Thirty-four infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 8 have died since the pandemic started.

• 938 cases, 73 hospitalizations and 12 deaths in Culpeper.

• 205 infections, 15 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Orange.

• 58 infections, 5 hospitalizations and 1 death in Madison.

• 40 cases and 4 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 26 COVID-19 deaths, and 131 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.
