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

404 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 1 from Saturday’s report.

57,994 Virginia cases — up 551 since Saturday. The total includes 55,504 confirmed and 2,490 “probable” infections.

1,611 deaths statewide — up 4 since Saturday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,508 and “probable” in 103.

543,186 diagnostic tests statewide — up 14,272 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 6.9 percent of those tests were positive, continuing a downward trend.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled at 5,840 as of Sunday, up 33 from 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, 7,646 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 863 infected patients Sunday, down 17, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 8,509.

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:

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

• 137 infections, 13 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Orange.

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

• 16 cases and 1 hospitalization in Rappahannock.

The district has 18 COVID-19 deaths, and 103 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 10,373 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 670 from
Saturday. Over the last seven days, 5.2 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive.
