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

1,237 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 15 from Saturday.

201,960 Virginia cases — up 1,161 since Saturday. The total includes 183,454 confirmed and 18,506 “probable” infections.

3,800 deaths statewide — up 1 from Saturday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 3,527 and “probable” in 273.

2,920,737 diagnostic tests statewide — up 33,375 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 7 percent of those tests were positive, trending upward.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 13,504 as of Sunday, up 24 since 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, 22,252 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,284 infected patients Sunday, down 28 from Saturday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 23,536.

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.

Sixty-one infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 28 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 1,734 cases (up 29), 103 hospitalizations and 18 deaths in Culpeper.

• 486 infections (up 3), 30 hospitalizations and 6 deaths (up 1) in Orange.

• 166 infections (up 4), 11 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Madison.

• 72 cases (up 2), 5 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 57 COVID-19 deaths, and 210 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 49,719 diagnostic tests in the district so far — up 561. Over the last seven days, 10.5 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, down slightly.
