COVID-19 Cases Holding Steady in Fairfax County

The number of new COVID-19 cases appears to be remaining steady in Fairfax County, according to data from the Virginia Department of Health.

The Fairfax Health District’s percent positivity has hovered between 5-7% since mid-June. Currently, it is at 6.4%, while the percent positivity statewide is 7%.

The weekly average of new COVID-19 cases has remained between 16-200 since mid-June in Northern Virginia. Statewide, the average has been dropping since mid-July after a spike.

The epidemic curve for the Fairfax Health District, which shows the number of new cases in a week by the date symptoms started, has remained mostly the same since June and saw a decrease in early August, according to Fairfax County’s dashboard.

As of today, the Fairfax Health District has a total of at least 17,154 cases, 1,975 hospitalizations and 550 deaths. Statewide, there have been more than 103,000 confirmed cases, 4,400 probably ones and 2,396 deaths.

The Herndon area (zip code 20170) has the fifth-highest cases per 100,000 people in Fairfax County, according to the county. The Dunn Loring area (zip code 22027) is the sixth-highest.

While the age group for people ages 18-49 has seen the most number of cases, people ages 65 and older have died the most from the virus in the county.

State health officials have pointed to a lag in reporting cases for spikes in daily updates on the VDH website.
