New Cases of COVID-19 in Virginia

After passing 100,000 cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, Virginia health officials reported just 663 new cases Monday. 

That's the lowest number reported in a single day since July 9. The 7-day average is at 1,092 statewide. The average is seen as a more reliable number to estimate the rate of new cases due to potential delays in day-to-day reporting.

Northern Virginia added 160 cases Monday, bringing the 7-day average to 238. That's down from an average of 257 Sunday.

The state reported one new death related to COVID-19 on Monday, with no new deaths reported in Northern Virginia.

Hospitalizations statewide climbed to 1,251, with 250 hospitalized in Northern Virginia.
