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

417 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — unchanged from Sunday’s report.

62,189 Virginia cases — up 453 since Sunday. The total includes 59,522 confirmed and 2,667 “probable” infections.

1,740 deaths statewide — up 8 since Sunday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,635 and “probable” in 105.

633,705 diagnostic tests statewide — up 8,042 since Sunday. Over the past seven days, 5.9 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled at 6,164 as of Monday, up 28 since Sunday.

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, 8,023 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 796 infected patients Monday, down 22 from Sunday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 8,841.

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:

• 808 cases, 62 hospitalizations and 10 deaths in Culpeper.

• 146 infections, 14 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Orange.

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

• 20 cases and 1 hospitalization in Rappahannock.

The district has 20 COVID-19 deaths, and 107 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 12,779 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 137 from
Sunday. Over the last seven days, 3.3 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive.

DougF- Don't even waste your time with Markcyst House. He wakes up every morning with Trump on his mind. Nothing else matters to him.
Mark House · June 30, 2020 at 8:41 pm
DF- I am without a doubt that you "fail" alright. How can any story tell us abut the "federal" response when there hasn't been one worth reporting? Another "FAIL".
DougF · June 30, 2020 at 3:53 pm
MH -- I was under the impression the story you responded to had a headline limited to Fauquier County, and the story was about the state of Virginia. It did not address the federal reponse at all or the relationship between that response and Virginia. I fail to see how you are commenting on the story.
Mark House · June 30, 2020 at 3:45 pm
DF-My statement is about PENCE and Trump who have NOT BEEN WEARING MASKS, but Pence now says yes we should all wear masks. My statement does not conflict with the facts that the POTUS and the head of the COVID-19 task force WERE NOT promoting the wearing of masks from the beginning. It was do as we say, and as we do not do.
DougF · June 30, 2020 at 3:14 pm
MH, Fauquier has a net of three cases in six days. I fail to see how that is "too late". Also, the federal government has recommended social distancing and masks for a long time, long before the increased cases in several states. Apparently your statement conflicts with the facts.
Mark House · June 30, 2020 at 12:10 pm
Now, Pence is saying we should all wear a MASK and social distance. Too late you dingus!
DougF · June 29, 2020 at 12:41 pm
I'm thankful that Fauquier has no new cases for the past two days. Plus, five days ago Fauquier had the same number of cases as today -- 417.
