5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Short-term rentals here


Short-term rentals — including those listed with Airbnb and Vbro — operate in Fauquier County.

That total comes from Host Compliance, a company whose software helps local governments monitor and tax those rentals, according to Fauquier Commissioner of Revenue Eric Maybach.

Fauquier neither regulates nor taxes stays in short-term rentals. But, county officials continue to evaluate the possibilities.


Total hours that the Fauquier County Fair will operate in July.

After a two-year absence — because of adjacent Central Sports Complex construction in 2019 and the COVID pandemic last year — the fair will return Wednesday through Saturday, July 14-17.

The fair will include midway rides, exhibits, food, a rodeo, a petting zoo, lawn mower races and a range of entertainment.

The fair will operate from 2 to 11 p.m. daily except Saturday, July 17, when it will open at 9 a.m.

Daily admission will cost $10 for adults and $5 for children younger than 15, senior citizens and military members.


Unemployed Fauquier residents, according to the most recent state report (for April).

A month earlier, the county had 1,403 jobless residents, according to the Virginia Employment Commission.

As the pandemic escalated and businesses closed in April 2020, the county’s unemployment total soared to 3,302 or 9 percent of the workforce.

This April, the county’s unemployment rate stood at 2.8 percent among a workforce of 35,640.

Virginia’s unemployment rate in April stood at 3.9 percent, compared to 5.7 percent nationwide.


Vacant teaching positions in Fauquier County Public Schools as of June 1.

The system also had 12 additional vacant “certified” positions, including administrators, counselors and a librarian.

County schools had 28 vacant “classified” positions, including bus drivers, instructional assistants and food service workers.

The school system received 450 applications for teaching positions in May, compared with 283 in the same month last year.


Doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered to Fauquier residents as of 5 p.m. Thursday.

So far, 37,930 county residents have received at least one dose. That represents 53.3 percent of Fauquier’s population. Statewide, 56.6 percent of residents have gotten at least one dose.

In Fauquier, 32,117 have completed vaccination, representing 45.1 percent, compared with 47 percent statewide.
