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

552 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 1 from Thursday.

82,364 Virginia cases — up 1,127 since Thursday, the highest one-day total of new infections since May 18. The total includes 79,253 confirmed and 3,111 “probable” infections.

2,067 deaths statewide — up 13 from Thursday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,964 and “probable” in 103.

987,188 diagnostic tests statewide — up 36,014 since Thursday. Over the past seven days, 7.5 percent of those tests were positive, trending downward.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 7,515 as of Friday, up 78 since Thursday.

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, 10,576 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,250 infected patients Friday — up 32, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 11,826.

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.

• 916 cases, 72 hospitalizations and 12 deaths in Culpeper.

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

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

• 39 cases and 4 hospitalizations and 1 death in Rappahannock.

The district has 25 COVID-19 deaths, and 130 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.
