Sunday morning COVID-19 update from theVirginia Department of Health:

861 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 7 from Saturday.

133,814 Virginia cases — up 874 since Saturday. The total includes 127,672 confirmed and 6,142 “probable” infections.

2,724 deaths statewide — up 2 from Saturday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 2,591 and “probable” in 133.

Please remember to not touch door knobs, railings, buttons. Use gloves especially at the gas station. Try your best not to get the pathogen on your hands. Hand washing is good but not 100 percent effective. Be proactive and preventive. God Bless Fauquier County residents and employees that serve the community.
