The reason the list above contains 95, not 94 cases is because in Wednesday’s noon update a case previously reported in Rockingham County was no longer reported in that county.
Lorrie Andrew-Spear with the Virginia Department of Health previously told 10 News that, “Numbers on the website are preliminary, and this change was due to inaccurate residency information that was later corrected, which decreased the numbers in those districts.”
These cases are “presumptively positive,” meaning they are pending confirmatory testing by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
As of Tuesday at noon, the Virginia Dept. of Health reports that 5,370 people have been tested.
