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

413 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 4 from Monday’s report.

58,994 Virginia cases — up 529 since Monday. The total includes 56,452 confirmed and 2,542 “probable” infections.

1,645 deaths statewide — up 25 since Monday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,542 and “probable” in 103.

565,835 diagnostic tests statewide — up 10,228 since Monday. Over the past seven days, 6.4 percent of those tests were positive, continuing a downward trend.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled at 5,913 as of Tuesday, up 44 from Monday.

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, 7,725 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 847 infected patients Tuesday, down 1, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 8,572.

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.

Twenty-six infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 6 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 802 cases, 59 hospitalizations and 9 deaths in Culpeper.

• 141 infections, 14 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Orange.

• 43 infections, 4 hospitalizations and 1 death in Madison.

• 18 cases and 1 hospitalization in Rappahannock.

The district has 18 COVID-19 deaths, and 105 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 11,905 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 110 from
Monday. Over the last seven days, 4.8 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive.
