Here’s a breakdown of the 1,644 new cases reported on Thursday. Don’t see your locality listed? Use the search bar and type in the name of any city or county.

While you may see a dramatic rise in cases in Roanoke County at 486, the City of Salem reported a decrease of 390 cases and the city of Roanoke reported 61 fewer cases, so the net total is just 35 new cases for the three localities.

(The daily breakdown of cases by locality and vaccine numbers are not available until noon, Monday through Friday.)

According to the health department, decreases in cases can be attributed to a person getting tested in a different locality than where they live or the automation process for electronically reported lab results may attach the wrong jurisdiction for a particular zip code.
