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

572 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 1 from Friday.

90,801 Virginia cases — up 913 since Friday. The total includes 87,367 confirmed and 3,434 “probable” infections.

2,215 deaths statewide — up 41 from Friday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 2,105 and “probable” in 110.

1,123,927 diagnostic tests statewide — up 16,567 since Friday. Over the past seven days, 7.2 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 7,910 as of Friday, up 44 since Friday.

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, 12,007 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,256 infected patients Saturday — down 78 from Friday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 13,263.

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

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

• 946 cases, 73 hospitalizations and 12 deaths in Culpeper.

• 210 infections, 16 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Orange.

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

• 40 cases and 4 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 26 COVID-19 deaths, and 132 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 22,008 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 414 from Friday. Over the last seven days, 4.2 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, trending downward.
