COVID-19 Case Count Passes 500 in Fairfax County

Fairfax County has seen another jump in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Cases rose from 488 on Monday to 532 today (Tuesday), according to data from the Virginia Department of Health

As of today, there are 3,333 confirmed cases and 63 deaths statewide, including five deaths in Fairfax County.

The Fairfax Health District, which includes Fairfax County, has the highest number of cases in the state, followed by Henrico County (267), which is near Richmond.

Nearby Arlington County has 237 cases, while Loudoun County has 209.

Recently, Northam urged Virginians to wear cloth face masks or coverings to reduce the spread of the virus — especially by asymptomatic people.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people wear cloth face coverings — not surgical masks or N-95 respirators that medical workers need.
