Meanwhile, the local health district reported no additional deaths but saw its percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests tick up to 10.3%, a slight rise from Saturday's 10.2%.

But Prince William remains behind Norfolk, Portsmouth and Loudoun County on its percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests. The rate is a measure that indicates whether there is enough testing to identify most cases of the disease in a community.

Local deaths: The Prince William Health District, which includes the county, Manassas and Manassas Park, reported its most recent COVID-19 death, that of a man in his 40s, on Saturday.

Monday, June 22: Prince William reports lowest positive rate on COVID-19 tests since March, no new deaths

The Prince William Health District on Monday reported fewer COVID-19 cases, no new deaths, and a percent-positivity rate in the range of 10% for the first time since March, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

Still, kids between the ages of 10 and 19 are once again showing the highest number of new cases with nine, or about 28% of the 32 reported in the past 24 hours.

Local deaths: The mostly positive COVID-19 report comes just one day after the local health district, which includes Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park, reported its latest two deaths: two men in their 60s.

The latest fatalities brought the local health district's death toll due to COVID-19 to 154. The fatalities include 133 residents of Prince William County, 16 of Manassas and five in Manassas Park.

The fatalities include those of 65 women and 89 men. Two were in their 30s, six were in their 40s, 13 were in their 50s, 33 were in their 60s, 38 were in their 70s and 62 were age 80 or older, according to VDH data.

New cases down, but highest among teens: The health district reported 32 new COVID-19 cases on Monday -- less than half of the 85 reported on Sunday. They included 25 in the county, three in Manassas and four in Manassas Park.

Kids and teens ages 10 through 19 had the highest number of positive tests reported on Monday with nine, nearly 28% of the total. The same age group reported 21 new cases on Sunday.

Across the health district, there have been 683 cases of COVID-19 among 10 through 19-year-olds and 298 cases among kids younger than 9 since the pandemic began. 

So far, however, there have been no deaths among local residents younger than 30, and hospitalizations among kids and teens have been minimal. Since the start of the pandemic, eight residents between the ages of 10 and 19 and seven residents age 9 and under have been hospitalized due to the disease.

Percent-positivity rate: Another significant bright spot in Monday's COVID-19 report was that the state and local percent-positivity rates on COVID-19 tests continued to decline. 

The local rate dropped a full percentage point on Monday to 10.2% (down from Sunday's 11.2%) and is lower than that of at least four Virginia health districts: the Eastern Shore (17.8%), Mount Rogers (11.5%), West Piedmont (11%) and Chesterfield (11.4%).

Statewide, the percent-positivity rate dipped from 6.9% on Sunday to 6.5% on Monday, while the Northern Virginia rate dropped from 8.2% on Sunday to 7.6% on Monday.

The World Health Organization recommends a percent-positivity rate of no higher than 10%, which the organization says is an indicator that enough tests are being performed to identify most cases of the disease.

The percent-positivity rate is one of the key measures Gov. Ralph Northam's administration is watching to decide when the state is ready to move forward through Virginia's three reopening phases. 

Hospitalizations: Hospitalizations due to COVID-19 declined again on Monday. The number of patients being treated for COVID-19 dropped from 863 to 848, down 15. 

The number of patients in intensive care units also dropped from 243 on Sunday to 240 on Monday, down three, while the number of patients on ventilators rose from 125 on Sunday to 132 on Monday, up seven.

There are 4,321 beds available in Virginia's hospitals should they be needed for COVID-19 patients, and about 22% of the state's ventilators are currently in use, according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

Also as of Saturday, 7,663 people who had been hospitalized for COVID-19 had been discharged, up 17 since Sunday.

The local health district reported five additional hospitalizations, bringing cumulative number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 in Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park to 763.

COVID cases statewide: Meanwhile, 471 new COVID-19 cases were reported across the state on Monday as well as 29 additional hospitalizations and nine new deaths.

The additions bring Virginia's cumulative COVID-19 numbers to 58,465 cases, 5,869 hospitalizations and 1,620 deaths, the VDH data show.

Once the covid scam starts to go away, the race and riots will continue, when that slows down, back to the covid nonsense.

Marty

Instead of a mile long article, one table with basic info would provide the necessary information. Total number of infections, % hospitalization, % death. Overall and daily. And by age groups.Such table would fit in the computer screen.

zcxnissan

Sad part is it truly peaked in April. Gov. Blackface dragged it out for political gain just like the mask edict, months after he should have done it. Now we have hot, warm and humid temperatures and sunlight the worst things for a virus and yet we have to wear masks in certain businesses. Good thing it's only enforceable by the health dept.

RaiderRider

number of cases is irrelevant as there is more testing. How about telling us about the hospitalization rate instead.

Marty

These number are pretty much useless. Especially for 60 years would and below. Would be good to know their health status and other relevant info.

Heymarket

I am disappointed to see PrinceWilliamTimes stopped reporting COVID-19 statistics (cases/deaths) for the "Northern Virginia" area. This was quite useful. They kept reporting these as long as the numbers were going up. Once they started trending downward, they stopped. I was counting on them to finish telling the whole story.

zcxnissan

Still pretty much a nursing home disease unless you have comorbidities like diabetes and obesity while younger. I see with the protests that social distancing never really mattered. Today's progressive democrat, do as I say not as I do. See Gov. Northam about that one.

Jia7c

New here. I took a test last Tuesday/Wednesday in Manassas. They still haven’t called me. Called the people doing the test they state they don’t handle the results and someone will call this week.

Marty

If you feel OK, why would you take the test? 5 minutes later (figuratively speaking) you can get infected and the entire test was a waste of time.

Marty

Our inept governor and his staff should travel, to Florida to learn how to handle the virus.

Omarndc72

Let businesses set their rules for dealing with the public in a safe manner till this blows over. Keep the beurocrats and politicians quarantine in Richmond, leave the rest of us alone.

zcxnissan

Its obvious it peaked in April by any metric. Obvious and deliberate overreaction by the Governor.

ed1

Peaked yes but due to the lack of appropriate measures by people out and about, it's declining at an alarming slow rate.

zcxnissan

Double peaked and has fallen off the map literally.

Marty

Looks like the governor is incapable of managing the virus crisis. Things are going from bad to worse by the day.

Omarndc72

You want to see how fast they open. ? Stop paying all of the state employees and politicians from governor down. Then you see how fast the politicians change.

Jameson

What is going to change by June 10th that will allow businesses to re-open. I can only imagine he will try to push the date back again.

someone

As more people are tested, more people will test positive for COVID-19. Flu viruses can hang-around for years. So, businesses could be closed for years.

zcxnissan

Its insane to do that you know that right?

joatmon

Because people are impatient and not taking it as seriously as they should. The stay at home order needs to be strictly enforced and more businesses need to shut down. I'm sorry, but McDonalds and Starbucks aren't essential. I see kids continuing to play on playgrounds and teenagers socializing because they are too dumb to realize the ramifications of their actions, nor do they care because they seem no threat to themselves. I received an email from a painting contractor the other day saying they are open and operating as an essential business. Really!? Stay home people or this will never get better!

Marty

We need to shut down 75% of the government, it is also not essential. Then we shall see how fast everything reopens. For the people who work at McDonalds, McDonalds is essential.

zcxnissan

Brad take your gibberish elsewhere fascist. More people are dying of murder, suicide and other health conditions because of quarantines and lock downs then this bad year flu. If you had practiced better eating and sanitary habits we probably wouldn't even have to discuss this you confused gender fool. Go see a psychiatrist.

Omarndc72

Its simple, go back to work. If your sick dont go out stay home till is passed. Stay away from elder people and wash your hands dont touch your face.

weouchere

InsideCommenter + Brad = Morons. Were you idiots calling him out for acting too soon before you started saying he acted too late like the rest of the Libtard party?

weouchere + zcxnissan = batshit crazy morons. I was never calling him out for acting too soon, he acted to late if we had started these measures two weeks earlier we would've been able to avoid 90% of the cases. The gas-lighting and lies you all do are just hilarious.

Actually it has been noted by many medical studies that blacks are more susceptible because they have many underlying conditions like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, unhealthy lifestyles. Social distancing is not being practiced in the cities. That's obvious. See New York City. Also wondering why nursing home death statistics are not being reported properly. They are ginning up the totals trying to use any disaster for political advantage. InsideCommenter and Brad your TDS is obvious.

The numbers in Chesterfield pale in comparison to Democrat cities and counties nationwide.

Ignorant statement of the article award has now been granted. A virus will spread where more people live, places that are more densely populated are naturally where the virus will spread faster. Despite this Democratic areas have been doing better than Red states who are whining like crybabies about not being able to get a haircut or dine in, a rise in cases in the state of Kentucky was attributed to fascist protests about the stay at home orders.

Gaslighting was a mastery first aced by Tamanny Hall democrats and passed on from generation to generation. From there to democrat Klansmen and segregationists. Even up to the modern day. Nowadays they have turned more fascistic/communist with their green new deals and universal incomes. Not to mention the bs being slung about global warming/climate change, or whatever they will call it next week.

Look, people are dying because of this terrible disease. Why don't you take your lies and obsessions to some neo-conservative chat room, no one wants to read your gibberish here.

InsideCommenter

What is this hot pile of garbage you call an argument. All you do is name call talk about facts and logic not whatever you saw on Facebook.

All he said was people are dying. That is accurate. Nationally we've had more deaths in a month than from a year with flu and that's with all the social distancing. If you're not capable of taking in seriously or don't want to be stuck at home, please at least where a mask and avoid contact with others.

InsideCommenter

ed1,

I agree with the one who talked about the mortality of this grave disease. The one who I was rebutting was zcxnissan who constantly trolls and makes up lies.

Joemama

If these non-essential democrats would stay home it would stop spreading.

InsideCommenter

Maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists would stay at their home instead of prancing around we could flatten the curve.

Brad

Or maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists had done their job timely and correctly in the first place these unfortunates might not have been infected or died.

zcxnissan

I guess going to Chinatown doesn't count if your Nancy Pelosi. So many lies, it comes natural to the old bat. She's probably a super spreader. She probably used hydroxychloroquine as an antidote.

ed1

Why would she use an unproven, dangerous drug pushed by trump. Was he being sarcastic about that one as well or only about disinfectant and really bright lights?

zcxnissan

Funny how most of the deaths are in Democrat cities and states. I guess they don't follow rules or laws.

InsideCommenter

Chesterfield is heavily Republican and has many cases. Anyhow cases tend to be in areas that have a larger population. Has nothing to do with political affiliation or rule following.
