On Friday, June 19, the Virginia Department of Health website updated its modeling for the state; the model was created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute. The analysis attempts to put the results of mitigation efforts in perspective.

mitigation model June 19

The latest model of possible outcomes based on mitigation efforts was released June 19.

A narrative by VDH officials about the state of the pandemic states that the impact of the Gov. Ralph Northam’s March 30 stay-at-home order “on transmission rates was immediate. Virginians began to change their own behavior in response to the emergency. Transmission rates eventually plateaued in mid-April, but above the 1.0 rate we associate with declines in new cases. By May, however, transmission rates were dropping again. They dropped below 1.0 by the end of the month. It is noteworthy that this second drop began before Virginia entered Phase I of the Forward Virginia plan.

“What happened to cause this second drop in transmission rates? It is difficult to say, but it has continued even as Virginia has moved from Phase I to Phase II of the Forward Virginia plan. One reason could be that Virginians themselves began to institute better infection control procedures, including wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. Businesses also instituted new procedures, following guidance from the CDC, VDH and guidance listed in the Forward Virginia plan. Simply, we may have gotten better at COVID-19.”

The narrative continues, “This did not happen evenly, however. Between mid-April and mid-May, some areas of the state saw transmission rates drop more than others. The rate of reduction … along with the transmission rate in mid-April, has a large impact on local forecasts of cases, hospitalizations and other COVID-19 outcomes.” The VDH released a chart showing where case reduction has been highest and lowest. (See chart below.)

reduction of infections by health district

This chart show how successful each health district has been in reducing infections. The high, moderate and low designations indicate whether a health district has been highly effective at reducing transmissions, moderately successful, or less successful.

An explanation of the newest model states that “the phased approach to reopening, increased testing and tracing, and the efforts of Virginia residents and business are having an impact.”

If Virginia experiences better case detection and steady transmission after public health restrictions are lifted, the model estimates that new confirmed cases already peaked. “Standing in stark contrast to this are the estimates if we simply returned to pre-emergency declaration behaviors and transmission rates. In this case, the model forecasts that new confirmed cases will peak at 174,907 per week during the July 4 holiday.”

The VDH explanation asserts that by taking the phased approach, the state has avoided 78,705 confirmed cases since May 15.

VDH analysis provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • The period of transition, from community mitigation to identify and contain, is a period of uncertainty.
  • The model has been better calibrated to capture district-level variations, improving local area forecasts.
  • New scenarios reflect the effect of improved infection control on outcomes.
  • Impact of better detection and isolation are beginning to show but uncertainty remains.

New confirmed cases

According to the Virginia Department of Health, the number of new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 across the state stands at 57,443 as of Saturday morning. That’s 650 new cases in 24 hours. On Friday, 555 new cases were added; the number of news cases in the state per day has been gradually rising since Monday, when 380 new cases were recorded, the lowest number of cases in one day since April 15, when there were 329.

The Virginia Department of Health reports that there have been 1,504 confirmed and 103 probable deaths related to COVID-19. The state’s death toll now stands at 1,607.

Testing

Virginia’s 7-day positivity rating is at 7% Saturday after being at 7.3% Wednesday. It was 7.4% as of Tuesday, 7.5% Monday, 7.6 Sunday and 7.9% Saturday. The rating was at 13% as of Saturday, May 25.

Virginia has administered a total of 528,914 PCR-only tests. (PCR refers to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction laboratory testing, which describes the majority of COVID-19 tests; these reveal whether or not there is an active infection.)

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, a total of 10,730 PCR-only tests have been given. The 7-day positivity rate is 5.5% Saturday. It was 6.5% last Sunday; on Thursday, May 28, it was reported at 19.6%.

Local data

Fauquier County has had a total of 403 positive cases since the beginning of the pandemic. The number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic is 26. Fauquier added one hospitalization June 16, but before that, no new Fauquier residents had been hospitalized since Sunday, June 7.

Fauquier County reported its sixth COVID-19 related death May 28, its first since Tuesday, May 12. The Virginia Department of Health reports its numbers based on the residence of the person, not where they died.

Culpeper County reported a ninth death Wednesday morning, June 10, its first since two deaths were counted June 2. The county is reporting 794 cases Saturday morning. Culpeper has reported a total of 59 patients hospitalized, the same since June 15.

Though the two counties are similar in many ways, Culpeper is reporting 1,531.1 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people; Fauquier is reporting only 570.2. Fauquier has hospitalized 36.8 patients per 100,000 people and Culpeper, 113.8. Culpeper is reporting twice as many deaths, proportionally, for its population: 17.4. Fauquier has recorded 8.5 deaths per 100,000 population.

The VDH reports that there have been 77 cases of COVID-19 among health care workers in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison counties). In total, 1,393 positive cases have been cited in the health district.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 762 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 13,468 positive cases.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, reported its third outbreak in a long-term care facility on Saturday, June 13. The first such outbreak was reported on May 21.

In Virginia, 230 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 5,549 cases and 1,004 deaths.

The local long-term care center outbreaks were the sixth, seventh and eighth outbreaks in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before.

The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue, jail, juvenile detention center or shelter.

One hundred and eighteen outbreak-related cases were being reported in the health district Saturday. That number has been stable for several days.

As of Saturday, the Fairfax County Health District continued to report the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 64. Fifty-seven of those were in long-term care settings, with three in health-care settings, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. There are 1,887 cases associated with those 65 outbreaks.

There are several health districts with between 15 and 20 outbreaks, but Fairfax has been by far the hardest hit.

The state of Virginia reported 427 outbreaks on Saturday. In total, 10,635 outbreak-associated cases are being reported.

The long view

On Friday, June 12, the Virginia Department of Health website updated its modeling for the state; the model was created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute. The analysis attempts to put the results of mitigation efforts in perspective.

A narrative by VDH officials about the state of the pandemic in Virginia states, “For the moment, we can exhale. The community mitigation strategies employed by Virginia's residents and businesses paused the epidemic. The transmission rate … which averaged 2.2 before public health restrictions were put in place, has dropped dramatically. It is below 1.0 and dropping in all but one region of Virginia, indicating the number of new daily cases should decline.

“Indeed, a Fortune analysis of New York Times data showed Virginia had the largest statewide drop in new reported cases between May 26 and June 9. Though the scale was due in part to some nuances in data reporting, the trend in new cases by both report and onset date is distinctly downward.

“Other factors are holding steady as well. While restrictions are loosening, most Virginians are deciding to stay ‘Safer at Home,’ and businesses are following the Forward Virginia guidelines. [On June 5, most of Virginia entered Phase II: Safer at Home of the Forward Virginia Plan, which represents a slight lifting of public health restrictions.] Though it is still early, increased testing and tracing seems to be having the desired effect.”

The VDH summary continues with a caution, “Nevertheless, uncertainties remain. This week's model run shows several possible paths forward for Virginia. In those paths where Virginians continue to follow the Forward Virginia guidelines, and increased testing and contact tracing works, we continue to see a decline in new cases.

“On other paths, we could see hospitals overwhelmed in most of the state. There is reason to be concerned.

“… Cases are rising in some states, including key border states and states along the I-95 corridor. Protests are bringing people together throughout the United States, including in Virginia. We are just beginning to reopen, and it is unclear what impact all of these factors will have. Although the situation looks good right now, the path we take depends on all of us.”

The latest model from UVA reports that community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 916,868 cases in the state thus far.

The UVA models predicts that “If Virginia experiences better case detection and a light rebound of COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, the model estimates new confirmed cases already peaked. However, if Virginia's residents relax social distancing even further, leading to a strong rebound, and case detection does not improve, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 67,590 per week during the week ending July 26, overwhelming hospitals in some areas.

“Though it is too early to be sure, the model indicates that even with a strong rebound, better detection may prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed.

“Doing nothing is not an option, however. Under the full rebound scenario, we expect new cases would peak at 187,920 during the July 4 holiday week.”

VDH analysis provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • The period of transition, from community mitigation to identify and contain, is a period of uncertainty.
  • The model shows several possible paths forward.
  • Impact of better detection and isolation are beginning to show but uncertainty remains.
  • Effect of events (e.g., protests, schools opening, rising cases in other states) are still unknown.

“Though it is too early to be sure, the model indicates that even with a strong rebound, better detection may prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed.

“Doing nothing is not an option, however. Under the full rebound scenario, we expect new cases would peak at 187,920 during the July 4 holiday week.”

The long-term care center outbreaks were the sixth, seventh and eighth outbreaks in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before.

The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue, jail, juvenile detention center or shelter.

One hundred and eighteen outbreak-related cases are being reported in the health district this morning.

As of Monday, the Fairfax County Health District continued to report the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 64. Fifty-seven of those were in long-term care settings, with three in health-care settings, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting.

The long view

On Friday, June 12, the Virginia Department of Health website updated its modeling for the state; the model was created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute. The analysis attempts to put the results of mitigation efforts in perspective.

A narrative by VDH officials about the state of the pandemic in Virginia states, “For the moment, we can exhale. The community mitigation strategies employed by Virginia's residents and businesses paused the epidemic. The transmission rate … which averaged 2.2 before public health restrictions were put in place, has dropped dramatically. It is below 1.0 and dropping in all but one region of Virginia, indicating the number of new daily cases should decline.

“Indeed, a Fortune analysis of New York Times data showed Virginia had the largest statewide drop in new reported cases between May 26 and June 9. Though the scale was due in part to some nuances in data reporting, the trend in new cases by both report and onset date is distinctly downward.

“Other factors are holding steady as well. While restrictions are loosening, most Virginians are deciding to stay ‘Safer at Home,’ and businesses are following the Forward Virginia guidelines. [On June 5, most of Virginia entered Phase II: Safer at Home of the Forward Virginia Plan, which represents a slight lifting of public health restrictions.] Though it is still early, increased testing and tracing seems to be having the desired effect.”

The VDH summary continues with a caution, “Nevertheless, uncertainties remain. This week's model run shows several possible paths forward for Virginia.

In Virginia, 224 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 5,401 cases and 870 deaths.

The long-term care center outbreaks were the sixth and seventh outbreaks in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before.

The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue, jail, juvenile detention center or shelter.

One hundred and fourteen outbreak-related cases are being reported in the health district this morning.

As of Friday, the Fairfax County Health District continued to report the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 64. Fifty-seven of those were in long-term care settings, with three in health-care settings, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. There are 1,455 cases associated with those 64 outbreaks, the same as yesterday

There are several health districts with between 15 and 20 outbreaks, but Fairfax has been by far the hardest hit.

The state of Virginia reported 410 outbreaks on Friday. In total, 9,127 outbreak-associated cases are being reported.

Hospitalized

The total number of patients who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Virginia is 5,445; 28 of those cases are classified as “probable” COVID-19 related. Eighty-five more people have been hospitalized as of Friday than had been on Thursday.

All statistics reported here are from the VDH website and are as of Thursday, June 11 at 5 p.m.

The long view

On June 5, the VDH website updated its modeling for the state. The model, created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute, shows a rosier outlook moving forward, with some caveats. The latest model reports that community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 865,067 cases in the state thus far.

The model predicts that if Virginia experiences better case detection and a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases have already peaked at 6,052 per week during the week ending May 24.

However, if the rebound is strong and case detection does not improve, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 52,265 per week during the week ending July 26.

VDH analysis provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • Data suggests social distancing is already relaxing.
  • Statewide, the reproduction rate continues to wobble around 1.0 in most regions.
  • New Agent Based Models (ABM) suggest that enhanced contact tracing may lead to significant containment.

The report continues to emphasize the importance of maintaining social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands even most of Virginia moves into Phase 2 of the Forward Virginia plan.

The model offers a warning too. “If Virginians do nothing, we expect cases will peak in Virginia at 146,863 per week during the week ending July 5.”

VDH mitigation map June 5

This graph predicts the ways new COVID-19 cases could rise or fall in Virginia, depending on different mitigation strategies.

The VDH reports that there have been 63 cases of COVID-19 among health care workers in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison counties). In total, 1,294 positive cases have been cited in the health district.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 697 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 12,580 positive cases.

Zip code-specific data shows that no zip codes showed any change from yesterday. The 22712 zip code, which includes Bealeton, continues to have the highest number of positive confirmed cases, at 86, the same as yesterday. Four hundred and seventy-one people who live in that zip code have been tested.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, reported its second outbreak in a long-term care facility May 29. The first such outbreak was reported on May 21. In Virginia, 224 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 5,260 cases and 824 deaths.

The long-term care center outbreaks were the sixth and seventh outbreaks in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before.

The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue, jail, juvenile detention center or shelter.

One hundred and fifteen outbreak-related cases are being reported in the health district this morning, one more than yesterday.

As of Sunday, the Fairfax County Health District continued to report the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 61. Fifty-seven of those were in long-term care settings, with two in health-care settings, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. There are 1,419 cases associated with those 61 outbreaks, one more than yesterday.

There are several health districts with between 15 and 18 outbreaks, but Fairfax has been by far the hardest hit.

The state of Virginia reported 391 outbreaks on Sunday. In total, 8,813 outbreak-associated cases are being reported.

Hospitalized

The total number of patients who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Virginia is 5106; 31 of those cases are classified as “probable” COVID-19 related. Fifty-two more people have been hospitalized as of Saturday than had been on Friday.

All statistics reported here are from the VDH website and are as of Saturday, June 6 at 5 p.m.

The long view

On June 5, the VDH website updated its modeling for the state. The model, created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute, shows a rosier outlook moving forward, with some caveats. The latest model reports that community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 865,067 cases in the state thus far.

The model predicts that if Virginia experiences better case detection and a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases have already peaked at 6,052 per week during the week ending May 24.

However, if the rebound is strong and case detection does not improve, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 52,265 per week during the week ending July 26.

VDH analysis provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • Data suggests social distancing is already relaxing.
  • Statewide, the reproduction rate continues to wobble around 1.0 in most regions.
  • New Agent Based Models (ABM) suggest that enhanced contact tracing may lead to significant containment.

The report continues to emphasize the importance of maintaining social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands even most of Virginia moves into Phase 2 of the Forward Virginia plan.

The model offers a warning too. “If Virginians do nothing, we expect cases will peak in Virginia at 146,863 per week during the week ending July 5.”

Fauquier cases by day

This chart from the VDH shows new confirmed cases in Fauquier County each day.

Fauquier County reported its sixth COVID-19 related death May 28, its first since Tuesday, May 12. The Virginia Department of Health reports its numbers based on the residence of the person, not where they died.

Fauquier County added three new cases of COVID-19 Wednesday morning, bringing the total to 329. The number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic is 23, one more than on Tuesday.

Culpeper County reported two deaths Tuesday morning, bringing the total there to eight. The county is reporting 727 cases Wednesday morning, seven more than Tuesday. Culpeper has reported a total of 51 patients hospitalized, one more than yesterday.

Though the two counties are similar in many ways, Culpeper is reporting 1,401.9 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people; Fauquier is reporting only 465.5. Fauquier has hospitalized 32.5 patients per 100,000 people and Culpeper, 98.3. Culpeper is reporting twice as many deaths, proportionally, for its population: 15.4. Fauquier has recorded 8.5 deaths per 100,000 population.

The VDH reports that there have been 60 cases of COVID-19 among health care workers in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison counties). In total, 1,222 cases have been cited in the health district.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 665 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 11,718 positive cases.

Zip code-specific data shows that the 22712 zip code, which includes Bealeton, continues to have the highest number of positive confirmed cases, at 82, the same since Monday. Four hundred and thirty-nine people who live in that zip code have been tested.

April Achter, population health coordinator with the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the VDH, said May 22 that Bealeton case numbers may be higher because the area has a larger percentage of essential workers – those who feel social and economic pressure to report to work. Bealeton has more apartments and other affordable housing; lower-income workers have been hit harder with the coronavirus because they feel the need to go to work, even if they are not feeling well, she said.

Remington (22734) was one of the only zip codes where cases rose this morning. The number there went from 21 to 23. The Goldvein zip code (22720) was moved into the suppressed category. (This means there are between 1 and 4 cases there.) Goldvein reported no cases Tuesday.

The number of cases in all other Fauquier County zip codes remained stable.

Hospitalized

The total number of patients who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Virginia is 4,884; 32 of those cases are classified as “probable” COVID-19 related. One hundred and ninety more people have been hospitalized as of Wednesday than had been on Tuesday.

All statistics reported here are from the VDH website and are as of Tuesday, June 2 at 5 p.m.

The long view

On May 29, the VDH website updated its modeling for the state. The model, created by the University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute, shows a rosier outlook moving forward, with some caveats. The latest model reports that community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 803,687 cases in the state thus far.

The model predicts that if Virginia experiences better case detection and a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases have already peaked at 6,021 per week during the week ending May 17.

However, if the rebound is strong and case detection does not improve, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 53,726 per week during the week ending July 19.

VDH analysis provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • Data suggests social distancing is already relaxing.
  • Statewide, the reproduction rate dropped below 1.0 on May 15. It averaged 2.2 prior to March 15.
  • Days from onset to diagnosis have dropped ~30% in recent weeks, from 6.8 April to 4.7 in early May. This suggests increased testing is improving detection.

The report continues to emphasize the importance of maintaining social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands even as all of Virginia moves into Phase 1 of the Forward Virginia plan

The VDH is hiring more than 1,300 contact tracers, investigators and other personnel in an attempt to improve case detection.

The Virginia Department of Health reports that there have been 1,300 confirmed and 107 probable deaths related to COVID-19. The state’s death toll now stands at 1,407.

Testing

The state's percentage of positive tests versus total tests continues to inch down. Virginia’s positivity rating was 13% as of Saturday and dropped to 12.4% Sunday. On Monday it was 11.8% and today it is 11.5%. Virginia has administered 328,889 PCR-only tests (6,321 more than yesterday). (PCR refers to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction laboratory testing, which describes the majority of COVID-19 tests; these reveal whether or not there is an active infection.)

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, 7,246 PCR-only tests have been given, for a positivity percentage of 13.3%. Yesterday’s positivity number was 15%, Sunday’s was 16.8 and Friday’s was 18.1%. On Thursday, May 28, it was reported at 19.6%.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, reported its second outbreak in a long-term care facility May 29. The first such outbreak was reported on May 21. In Virginia, 214 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 4,973 cases and 796 deaths.

The long-term care center outbreaks were the sixth and seventh outbreaks in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before.

The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue or shelter.

One hundred and twelve outbreak-related cases are being reported in the health district this morning, three more than yesterday.

As of Tuesday, the Fairfax County Health District has reported the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 58. Fifty-four of those were in long-term care settings, with two in health-care settings, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. There are 1,373 cases associated with those 58 outbreaks, three more than yesterday.

There are several health districts with between 15 and 18 outbreaks, but Fairfax has been by far the hardest hit.

The state of Virginia reported 367 outbreaks on Tuesday. In total, 8,102 outbreak-associated cases are being reported. That’s 167 more than yesterday.

Local data

Fauquier County reported its sixth COVID-19 related death May 28, its first since Tuesday, May 12. The Virginia Department of Health reports its numbers based on the residence of the person, not where they died.

Fauquier County added three new cases of COVID-19 Tuesday morning, bringing the total to 326. The number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic is 22, one more than on Monday.

Culpeper County reported two deaths Tuesday morning, bringing the total there to eight. The county is reporting 720 cases Tuesday morning, seven more than Monday. Culpeper has reported a total of 50 patients hospitalized, two more than yesterday.

Though the two counties are similar in many ways, Culpeper is reporting 1,388.4 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people; Fauquier is reporting only 461.3. Fauquier has hospitalized 31.3 patients per 100,000 people and Culpeper, 96.4. Culpeper is reporting twice as many deaths, proportionally, for its population: 15.4. Fauquier has recorded 8.5 deaths per 100,000 population.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 651 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 11,548 positive cases.

Zip code-specific data shows that the 22712 zip code, which includes Bealeton, continues to have the highest number of positive confirmed cases, at 82, the same as Monday. Four hundred and twenty-six people who live in that zip code have been tested.

April Achter, population health coordinator with the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the VDH, said May 22 that Bealeton case numbers may be higher because the area has a larger percentage of essential workers – those who feel social and economic pressure to report to work. Bealeton has more apartments and other affordable housing; lower-income workers have been hit harder with the coronavirus because they feel the need to go to work, even if they are not feeling well, she said.

The Warrenton zip code of 20186 added one case Tuesday morning, for a total of 57 cases out of 657 people tested. Sumerduck added one case as well, for a total of 16 out of 78 tested. The number of cases in all other Fauquier County zip codes remained stable.

April Achter, population health coordinator with the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the VDH, said May 22 that Bealeton case numbers may be higher because the area has a larger percentage of essential workers – those who feel social and economic pressure to report to work. Bealeton has more apartments and other affordable housing; lower-income workers have been hit harder with the coronavirus because they feel the need to go to work, even if they are not feeling well, she said.

The 20186 zip code, which covers most of Warrenton, has 54 cases out of 609 tested. 20187, which covers the rest of Warrenton and the New Baltimore area, has reported 58 positive cases of 487 tested.

Marshall, at zip code 20115, has 30 cases (the same as yesterday) with 177 people tested; Catlett, at 20119 has 21 cases with 134 residents tested; in Remington (22734), 21 have reported positive, from 127 tests. Sumerduck (22742) is reporting 15 positive cases out of 72 tested.

If the number of cases is fewer than five, the VDH suppresses the number, so as not to unintentionally identify individuals. Zip codes 20137 (Broad Run) and 22728 (Midland) were removed from the suppressed category last Sunday. Friday, Broad Run is reporting 11 positive cases and Midland, seven.

The 20198 zip code in The Plains moved out of the suppressed category Tuesday morning and today is reporting six cases after 48 tests were completed.

All other Fauquier County zip codes have fewer than five cases thus far.

All numbers reported here are as of Friday, May 29 at 5 p.m.

On May 22, the VDH website reported that according to a model of the COVID-19 health crisis in Virginia, community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 710,144 cases in the state. The VDH model predicts that if Virginia experiences a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases will peak at 38,456 per week during the week ending Aug. 9.

However, if the rebound is strong, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 65,454 per week during the week ending July 26.

Analysis provided by the VDH provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • Data suggests social distancing is already relaxing.
  • Statewide, the reproduction rate dropped below 1.0 on May 10. It averaged 2.2 prior to March 15. (A reproduction rate below 1.0 suggests that those who are infected are passing it on, on average, to fewer than one person.)
  • Early evidence suggests rebound may be less intense than feared. Intensity depends on behaviors reflected in “the new normal” and the effectiveness of test/trace/isolate.

The VDH is hiring more than 1,300 contact tracers, investigators and other personnel in an attempt to avoid the higher numbers.

The total number patients who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Virginia is 4,325; 31 of those cases are classified as “probable” COVID-19 related. Fifty-six more people have been hospitalized as of Tuesday than had been on Monday.

On May 22, the VDH website reported that according to a model of the COVID-19 health crisis in Virginia, community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 710,144 cases in the state. The VDH model predicts that if Virginia experiences a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases will peak at 38,456 per week during the week ending Aug. 9.

However, if the rebound is strong, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 65,454 per week during the week ending July 26.

Analysis provided by the VDH provides an overview of the pandemic response in Virginia:

  • Public health restrictions paused the epidemic in Virginia and bought time.
  • Data suggests social distancing is already relaxing.
  • Statewide, the reproduction rate dropped below 1.0 on May 10. It averaged 2.2 prior to March 15. (A reproduction rate below 1.0 suggests that those who are infected are passing it on, on average, to fewer than one person.)
  • Early evidence suggests rebound may be less intense than feared. Intensity depends on behaviors reflected in “the new normal” and the effectiveness of test/trace/isolate.

The VDH is hiring more than 1,300 contact tracers, investigators and other personnel in an attempt to avoid the higher numbers.

MONDAY, MAY 25: According to the Virginia Department of Health, the number of new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 across the state stands at 37,727 as of Monday morning, which means 1,483 new cases were confirmed in a 24-hour period. Yesterday, only 495 more cases were added. On Saturday, 799 cases were added; Friday, the number of new cases was 813 and Thursday, 1,229 cases were added, for the greatest number of new cases added in a single day (until today).

Virginia added 37 COVID-19 related deaths Monday morning; 12 were added yesterday and 37 the day before. The Virginia Department of Health reports that there have been 1,158 confirmed and 50 probable deaths related to COVID-19. The state’s death toll now stands at 1,208.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, on May 21 reported its first outbreak in a long-term care facility. In Virginia, 190 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 4,490 cases and 699 deaths.

The long-term care center outbreak was the sixth outbreak in the local health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before. The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue or shelter.

Eighty-three outbreak-related cases have been reported in the health district this morning, one more than was reported yesterday.

As of Monday, the Fairfax Health District has reported the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 54. Fifty of those were in long-term care settings, with two in a health care setting, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. 1,323 cases are associated with those 54 outbreaks.

The state of Virginia reported 324 outbreaks Monday – the same as yesterday. In total, 7,122 outbreak-associated cases are being reported. That’s 51 more than Sunday.

Testing

As of Monday, Virginia has administered 256,913 PCR-only tests (14,621 more than yesterday), which gives the state a positivity percentage of 14.3%. (PCR refers to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction laboratory testing, which describes the majority of COVID-19 tests; these reveal whether or not there is an active infection.)

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, 5,334 PCR-only tests have been given for a positivity percentage of 21.6%.

Northam has set a goal of 10,000 new tests to be administered across the state daily before allowing all businesses to reopen.

Local data

Fauquier County added 3 new cases of COVID-19 Monday morning, so the number is currently 285. The total number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic is 20. No new Fauquier residents have been hospitalized since Thursday, May 14.

Fauquier County reported its fifth COVID-19 related death on Tuesday, May 12. The Virginia Department of Health reports its numbers depending on the residence of the person, not where they died.

For much of the last two months, Culpeper and Fauquier counties were showing similar caseloads. but Culpeper’s numbers have risen more quickly lately. The county is reporting 594 cases Monday morning, 20 more than Sunday. The county added 20 on Saturday, 19 on Friday, 29 on Thursday and 32 on Wednesday; 42 were added Wednesday, and the county added 64 new cases Tuesday morning. Culpeper today reported a total of 46 patients hospitalized, one more than yesterday. The county reported its fifth death on May 9.

The VDH reports that there have been 49 cases of COVID-19 among health care workers in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison counties). In total, 1,025 cases have been cited in the health district.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 575 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 9,587 positive cases.

Zip code-specific data shows that the 22712 zip code, which includes Bealeton, has the highest number of positive confirmed cases, at 74. Three hundred and twenty people who live in that zip code have been tested.

April Achter, population health coordinator with the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the VDH, said Friday that Bealeton case numbers may be higher because the area has a larger percentage of essential workers – those who feel social and economic pressure to report to work. Bealeton has more apartments and other affordable housing; lower-income workers have been hit harder with the coronavirus because they feel the need to go to work, even if they are not feeling well, she said.

The 20186 zip code, which covers most of Warrenton, has 52 cases out of 425 tested. 20187, which covers the rest of Warrenton and the New Baltimore area, has reported 47 positive cases of 407 tested.

Marshall, at zip code 20115, has 27 cases with 154 people tested; Catlett, at 20119 has 21 cases with 119 residents tested; in Remington (22734), 20 have reported positive, from 105 tests. Sumerduck (22742) is reporting 15 positive cases out of 61 tested.

If the number of cases is fewer than five, the VDH suppresses the number, so as not to unintentionally identify individuals. Zip codes 20137 (Broad Run) and 22728 (Midland) have been removed from the suppressed category. Broad Run is reporting five positive cases and Midland, seven.

All other Fauquier County zip codes have fewer than five cases thus far.

Virginia added 25 COVID-19 related deaths Thursday morning, down from 33 added yesterday and 27 the day before. Five were added Monday and seven added Sunday. Saturday’s number was 25. The Virginia Department of Health reports that there have been 1,064 confirmed and 35 probable deaths related to COVID-19. The state’s death toll now stands at 1,099.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, on Thursday reported its first outbreak in a long-term care facility. In Virginia, 186 outbreaks have occurred in long-term care facilities, resulting in 4,304 cases and 654 deaths.

The long-term care center outbreak was the sixth outbreak in the health district since the VDH started reporting. The fifth outbreak was reported May 14 and the fourth the day before. The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); four have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue or shelter.

Sixty-eight outbreak-related cases have been reported in the health district.

As of Thursday, the Fairfax Health District has reported the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 53. Forty-nine of those were in long-term care settings, with two in a health care setting, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. 1,309 cases are associated with those 53 outbreaks.

In total, Virginia reported 314 outbreaks Thursday – three more than yesterday. In total, 6,872 outbreak-associated cases are being reported. That’s 61 more than Wednesday.

Testing

As part of its data releases each day, the Virginia Department of Health started on Friday, May 15 distinguishing between total COVID-19 tests administered and PCR tests only. PCR refers to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction laboratory testing, which describes the majority of COVID-19 tests; these reveal whether or not there is an active infection.

The other part of the data – referred to as “total” tests -- includes serology testing (also referred to as antibody testing), which reveals whether someone has been previously infected, but not if they are currently positive.

Gov. Ralph Northam has said he is keeping an eye on the state’s positivity rating, which had been calculated by dividing the positive tests by the total tests. He has said the state considers the positivity numbers' trajectory when making decisions about reopening businesses.

Because the “total” number is higher than the “PCR only” number, the positivity rate is higher when only the PCR numbers are included.

For instance, as of Thursday, Virginia has administered a total of 241,957 tests (6,758 more than as of Wednesday), for a positivity number of 13.2%. Only 216,890 PCR-only tests have been given, which raises the positivity percentage to 14.4%.

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, 4,918 total tests have been given for a positivity number of 18.3%. When only considering the PCR tests (4,365), the percentage is at 20.6%.

Northam has set a goal of 10,000 new tests to be administered across the state daily before allowing all businesses to reopen.

Local data

Fauquier County added ten new cases of COVID-19 Thursday morning, so the number is currently 261. The health district added 20 yesterday and ten the day before. The number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized is 20. That number has remained steady for several days.

Fauquier County reported its fifth COVID-19 related death on Tuesday, May 12. The Virginia Department of Health reports its numbers depending on the residence of the person, not where they died.

For much of the last two months, Culpeper and Fauquier counties were showing similar caseloads. but more recently, Culpeper’s numbers have been escalating. The county is reporting 526 cases Thursday morning, 32 more than Wednesday; 42 were added Wednesday, and the county added 64 new cases Tuesday morning. Culpeper on Thursday reported a total of 43 patients hospitalized, six more than yesterday. The county reported its fifth death on May 9.

The VDH reports that there have been 46 cases of COVID-19 among health care workers in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison counties). In total, 899 cases have been cited in the health district.

For comparison, positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in 528 health care workers in the Fairfax district. That district has a total of 8,677 positive cases.

Zip code-specific data shows that the 22712 zip code, which includes Bealeton, has the highest number of positive confirmed cases, at 70. Two hundred and seventy-seven people who live in that zip code have been tested.

The 20186 zip code, which covers most of Warrenton, has 46 cases out of 374 tested. 20187, which covers the rest of Warrenton and the New Baltimore area, has reported 43 positive cases of 338 tested.

Marshall, at zip code 20115, has 24 cases with 121 people tested; Catlett, at 20119 has 17 cases with 93 residents tested; in Remington (22734), 19 have reported positive, from 91 tests. Sumerduck (22742) is reporting 14 positive cases out of 27 tested.

If the number of cases is fewer than five, the VDH suppresses the number, so as not to unintentionally identify individuals. Zip codes 20137 (Broad Run) and 22728 (Midland) have been removed from the suppressed category and are now reporting five positive cases each.

All other Fauqiuer County zip codes have fewer than five cases thus far.

All numbers reported here are as of Wednesday, May 19 at 5 p.m.

The VDH website has reported that according to a model of the COVID-19 health crisis in Virginia, community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses have avoided 499,593 cases in the state. The VDH model predicts that if Virginia experiences a light rebound in COVID-19 cases after public health restrictions are lifted, new confirmed cases will peak at 101,367 per week during the week ending July 12.

However, if the rebound is strong, the model forecasts new confirmed cases will peak at 144,966 per week during the week ending July 5.

The VDH is hiring more than 1,300 contact tracers, investigators and other personnel in an attempt to avoid those higher numbers.

Because the “total” number is higher than the “PCR only” number, the positivity rate is higher when only the PCR numbers are included.

For instance, as of Tuesday, Virginia has administered a total of 224,991 tests (6,598 more than as of Monday), for a positivity number of 13.4%. Only 201,183 PCR tests have been given, which changes the positivity percentage to 14.9%.

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, 4,612 total tests have been given for a positivity number of 19.6%. When considering the PCR tests only (4,092), the percentage is at 22.4%.

April Achter of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the Virginia Department of Health, explained Friday, "There have been a number of concerns with how VDH is calculating testing and the percent positivity rate, especially since they added serology tests to the mix. The main issue that seems to come up is that some fear that the serology tests were added to 'pad' the statistics to make them appear better (lower positivity rate).

"VDH has since separated the two and will report the data with and without serology results included. The good news is that both curves appear very similar, with a decline in positivity rates noted on both curves.”

Northam has set a goal of 10,000 new tests to be administered across the state daily before allowing all businesses to reopen.

Outbreaks

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, reported its fifth “outbreak” Friday morning after reporting its fourth Thursday morning. The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); the four most recent have been in “congregate settings.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue or shelter.

Forty-one outbreak-related cases have been reported in the health district, 1 more than yesterday.

As of Saturday, the Fairfax Health District has reported the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 45. Forty-one of those were in long-term care settings, with two in a health care setting, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting. 1,249 cases are associated with those 45 outbreaks, the same number as yesterday.

In total, Virginia reported 292 outbreaks Saturday, 170 of them in long-term care facilities, resulting in 4,035 cases and 589 deaths. In total, 6,226 outbreak-associated cases are being reported. That’s 218 more than Saturday.

Testing

As part of its data releases each day, the Virginia Department of Health started on Friday, May 15 distinguishing between total COVID-19 tests administered and PCR tests only. PCR refers to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction laboratory testing, which describes the majority of COVID-19 tests; these reveal whether or not there is an active infection.

The other part of the data – referred to as “total” tests -- includes serology testing (also referred to as antibody testing), which reveals whether someone has been previously infected, but not if they are currently positive.

Gov. Ralph Northam has said he is keeping an eye on the state’s positivity rating, which has been calculated by dividing the positive tests by the total tests. He has said the state considers the positivity numbers' trajectory when making decisions about reopening businesses.

Because the “total” number is higher than the “PCR only” number, the positivity rate is higher when only the PCR numbers are included.

For instance, as of Saturday, Virginia has administered a total of 205,249 tests (9,613 more than as of Saturday), for a positivity number of 13.4%. Only 184,118 PCR tests have been given, which changes the positivity percentage to 15.1%. The total numbers make it seem as Virginia is doing better than it is at keeping case numbers down. By only reporting the total number (up until today), it also seemed like Virginia was also doing better at administering tests.

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, 4,101 total tests have been given for a positivity number of 16.9%. When considering the PCR tests only, the percentage is at 20.6%.

April Achter of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the Virginia Department of Health, explained, "There have been a number of concerns with how VDH is calculating testing and the percent positivity rate, especially since they added serology tests to the mix. The main issue that seems to come up is that some fear that the serology tests were added to 'pad' the statistics to make them appear better (lower positivity rate).

"VDH has since separated the two and will report the data with and without serology results included.

"The good news is that both curves appear very similar, with a decline in positivity rates noted on both curves.

Northam has set a goal of 10,000 new tests to be administered across the state daily before allowing all businesses to reopen.

The Virginia Health Department is adjusting the way it reports daily updates. Some new information is available and some details that had previously been a part of the update are not included.

For instance, on Saturday, the website reported that according to a model of the COVID-19 health crisis in Virginia, community mitigation efforts like social distancing and closing some businesses has avoided 203,669 cases in the state. If those efforts were to continue through June 10, the model predicts that 993,835 cases could be avoided.

Missing from the website this morning is information about outbreaks in the state. The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, of which Fauquier County is a part, reported a second “outbreak” Thursday morning. The first was in a health care facility (not Fauquier Health); the most recent was in a “congregate setting.” The definition of congregate setting is broad and could include an adult day care program, an apartment complex, church, place of business, neighborhood, event venue or shelter. As reported Friday, there have been 49 outbreaks in the state in congregate settings, for a total 664 cases of COVID-19 and 12 deaths.

Also as of Friday, the Fairfax Health District has reported the greatest number of outbreaks of any health district, with 35. Thirty-two of those were in long-term care settings, with one in a health care setting, one in a correctional facility and one in an educational setting.

In total, Virginia reported 226 outbreaks as of yesterday, 132 of them in long-term care facilities, resulting in 2,412 cases and 331 deaths.

Virginia reported its highest number of daily COVID-19 tests ever on Friday with 14,805 additional tests reported in the previous 24 hours. That's more than twice as much as the state's previous one-day record of 5,500 tests, set just one day before on Thursday, April 30.

The Virginia Mercury reported Friday afternoon that Alena Yarmosky, a spokeswoman for Gov. Ralph Northam, said that roughly 5,800 of those results were new tests — a record for the state. But the other roughly 9,000 were older tests that the state retroactively included in its cumulative daily results.

Health Commissioner Dr. Norman Oliver said the old methodology counted the total number of people tested rather than the total number of tests conducted. Previously, if a single patient was tested four different times over the course of the illness, VDH reported that as one result.

Saturday's report shows that in the commonwealth, 112,450 tests have been completed on 101,344 people. The number represents 6,802 more tests than had been completed yesterday.

More details may be found at the VDH site.

Friday, May 1: Virginia reported its highest number of daily COVID-19 tests ever on Friday with 14,805 additional tests reported in the last 24 hours. That's more than twice as much as the state's previous one-day record of 5,500 tests set just one day before on Thursday, April 30.

The testing boon was accompanied by a record-setting number of new confirmed and probable cases across the state, which now stand at 16,091. That's 1,037 more than the 15,864 reported on Thursday and the highest one-day total to date.

The percent of positive cases relative to new tests, however, fell to just 7% because of the explosion in new tests. The percentage is less than half of the 15% reported on Thursday.

The state reported 29 new deaths, however, for new totals of 572 confirmed and nine probable deaths related to COVID-19. Virginia's total COVID-19 death toll now stands at 581.

Fauquier cases of COVID-19 have risen by 17 to 128 since yesterday. The number of Fauquier residents who have been hospitalized remains at ten. The number of COVID-19-related deaths reported for Fauquier is still two.
