*** The July 7 case total includes an adjustment made by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to the aggregate number of cases in the Fairfax Health District due to duplicate lab reporting or incorrectly assigned health districts. As a result, a total of 28 cases were removed from the cumulative total.  A total of 14 new Fairfax Health District cases were reported, without the VDH correction. So the new case total being reported on July 7 is -14.
