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

420 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 3 from Monday’s report.

62,787 Virginia cases — up 598 since Monday. The total includes 60,124 confirmed and 2,663 “probable” infections.

1,763 deaths statewide — up 23 since Monday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,658 and “probable” in 105.

642,371 diagnostic tests statewide — up 8,666 since Monday. Over the past seven days, 6 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled at 6,203 as of Tuesday, up 39 since Monday.

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, 8,080 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 902 infected patients Tuesday, up 106 from Monday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 8,982.

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-seven infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 6 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 149 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 108 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

Monday. Over the last seven days, 2.7 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive.
