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

1,346 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 9 from Saturday morning’s report.

217,796 Virginia cases — up 2,117 since Saturday. The total includes 195,499 confirmed and 22,997 “probable” infections.

3,938 deaths statewide — unchanged from Saturday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 3,628 and “probable” in 310.

3,118,894 PCR diagnostic tests statewide — up 47,262 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 7.1 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 14,046 as of Sunday, up 29 since Saturday.

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, 23,133 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,469 infected patients Sunday, down 38 from Saturday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 24,602.

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.

Sixty-seven infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 27 have died since the pandemic started.

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, which includes Fauquier:

• 1,877 cases (up 5), 105 hospitalizations and 19 deaths in Culpeper.

• 522 infections (up 4), 33 hospitalizations (up 1) and 7 deaths in Orange.

• 175 infections (up 3), 12 hospitalizations and 4 deaths in Madison.

• 76 cases (up 1), 5 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 59 COVID-19 deaths, and 222 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.
