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

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

61,736 Virginia cases — up 489 since Saturday. The total includes 59,071 confirmed and 2,665 “probable” infections.

1,732 deaths statewide — up 8 since Saturday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,628 and “probable” in 104.

625,663 diagnostic tests statewide — up 10,373 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 5.8 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled at 6,136 as of Sunday, up 16 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, 8,005 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 818 infected patients Sunday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 8,823.

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.

• 145 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 12,642 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 133 from
Saturday. Over the last seven days, 3.9 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive.

Good information about masks types from the CDC. Don't use the masks with ventilator holes such as dust masks per their recommendations.
