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

551 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 6 from Wednesday.

81,237 Virginia cases — up 844 since Wednesday. The total includes 78,182 confirmed and 3,055 “probable” infections.

2,054 deaths statewide — up 3 from Wednesday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,951 and “probable” in 103.

951,174 diagnostic tests statewide — up 14,026 since Wednesday. Over the past seven days, 7.7 percent of those tests were positive, trending downward.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 7,437 as of Thursday, up 86 since Wednesday.

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, 10,479 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,218 infected patients Thursday — up 61, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 11,697.

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.

Thirty-two infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 8 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 915 cases, 72 hospitalizations and 12 deaths in Culpeper.

• 188 infections, 15 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Orange.

• 51 infections, 5 hospitalizations and 1 death in Madison.

• 36 cases and 4 hospitalizations and 1 death in Rappahannock.

The district has 25 COVID-19 deaths, and 129 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 18,666 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 354 from Wednesday. Over the last seven days, 3.7 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, trending downward.
