Understanding this Information

  • The information in the case table is not intended to be used for individual diagnoses or to measure individual risk. Please call your health care provider if you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing.
  • In addition to the number of confirmed cases and deaths seen in each age group, rates are provided to indicate the age distribution of cases and deaths while taking into account the size differences of the age groups. This rate is the number of cases in an age group divided by the total number of people within that age group.
  • All data are subject to change as more information is received.

COVID-19 knows no boundaries or zip codes.

All geographic areas of Fairfax County currently are at risk of disease transmission. These cases only represent a place of residence and not where transmission may have occurred, so it should not be used to measure individual risk.
