Two more COVID-19 deaths reported


Two more Rappahanno­ck County residents died due to COVID-19 last week — while new cases continued to fall — in signs of both the lingering toll and waning of the Omicron surge, according to state data as of Friday.

Hospitaliz­ations statewide for treatment of the virus are also back below year- earlier levels as the spread of the Omicron variant continues to subside. Reported deaths from the winter surge, however, remain at their highest levels since last winter.

In Rappahanno­ck County, the two additional virus-related deaths raised the total number of local deaths to 10 since the pandemic began in 2020.
