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

1,332 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 23 from Thursday morning’s report.

213,331 Virginia cases — up 2,554 since Thursday. The total includes 191,971 confirmed and 21,360 “probable” infections.

3,912 deaths statewide — up 16 from Thursday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 3,605 and “probable” in 307.

3,035,632 PCR diagnostic tests statewide — up 28,171 since Thursday. Over the past seven days, 7 percent of those tests were positive, down slightly.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 13,914 as of Friday, up 99 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, 22,946 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,510 infected patients Friday, down 56 from Thursday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 24,456.

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 (up 1 Friday) and 27 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 1,866 cases (up 12), 105 hospitalizations and 20 deaths (up 1) in Culpeper.

• 515 infections (up 13), 32 hospitalizations (up 1) and 7 deaths in Orange.

• 171 infections (unchanged), 12 hospitalizations and 4 deaths in Madison.

• 75 cases (unchanged), 5 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 60 COVID-19 deaths, and 221 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 51,077 PCR tests in the district so far — up 307. Over the last seven days, 7.4 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, trending downward.
