Virginia reported 1,115 new COVID-19 cases Friday, including 259 new cases in Northern Virginia.
Both numbers are higher than the average in recent days, but in line with the past several weeks, possibly suggesting a lag in testing and reporting following the Labor Day holiday.
The state's total number of cases is at 131,640, with 47,174 cases in Northern Virginia.
Health officials reported three new deaths linked to COVID-19, including one in Northern Virginia.
The state has 1,120 patients hospitalized due to the coronavirus, slightly higher than recent weeks, but lower than the nearly 1,300 patients a month ago.
Northern Virginia reported 244 patients hospitalized, down from 271 a week ago.
