The Case Data Dashboard provides information about COVID-19 in the Fairfax Health District. Please note the following:
- How to Read: Information about each of the data sets is explained on the left side of the dashboard. Answers to FAQs can be found at the bottom of this page.
- Data only represents COVID-19 confirmed and probable cases reported to the Health Department: Due to the limitations described in the dashboard, the numbers are underestimates of the true burden of COVID-19 in the community. It is important to understand these limitations when interpreting the data.
- Data should not be used to determine your individual level of risk or to self-diagnose. Cases represent a place of residence and not necessarily where transmission may have occurred. There is community transmission across the entire region and everyone should follow recommendations to protect themselves and slow the spread of COVID-19.
For more explanation, please see the FAQs below the dashboard.

The Virginia Department of Health has a lot of sources of incoming data — commercial labs, public health labs and hospital labs — who are all reporting into the same system that are used to calculate the COVID-19 statewide data. Staff are constantly entering and reviewing data so what gets reported is considered preliminary. Given the volume of cases reported every day, slight difference in counts may reflect what the database has captured at different points in time, or in some instances, counts may need to be adjusted to reflect corrections to data.
