Due to the growth in the number of cases, 10 News will no longer be maintaining a text-based list. Rather, we will update the map below, based upon VDH data, that shows the spread of the coronavirus in Virginia on a day-by-day basis since the first case was diagnosed on March 7.
On July 8, VDH reported that there had been at least one case in all 133 of Virginia’s cities and counties.

As of Saturday, 2,681,303 total tests have been administered in Virginia. That’s an increase from Friday’s 2,666,896 total tests. Below is a visual look at Virginia’s testing numbers since March 16.
The reason for the large testing increase on June 12 is that a backlog of about 43,000 negative tests were able to be included after two laboratories began electronic submission of reporting.
For the week of August 16, VDH anticipates an influx of new data. This development is due to some labs beginning to report results electronically as opposed to by fax. These new numbers do not represent new data and will be represented on the day the lab originally reported the results.
Due to a technical error by VDH, we do not know the number of total people tested for May 6. We are also missing the testing number for June 7 and September 5.
Virginia is no longer releasing its number of negative COVID-19 tests; however, as of March 12, Virginia has had 117 negative tests for COVID-19. That was up from 60 negative tests on March 11.
On Tuesday, March 10, the Virginia Department of Health, announced it would no longer report the number of pending tests because testing capacity has expanded to include commercial labs. Those labs report all testing results to VDH.
