VDH officials say they will begin reporting test encounter data using a tiered approach.
Beginning Saturday, May 30, if a test record is missing a patient address ZIP Code, the ordering provider’s ZIP Code will be used. If neither ZIP Code for the patient or ordering provider is available, the testing laboratory’s ZIP Code will be used.
The new approach impact 37,362 test results that were previously not assigned a health district designation because incomplete patient address information was reported to VDH.
According to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association, 1,471 residents in Virginia are currently hospitalized due to the virus. That number is a combination of confirmed positive COVID-19 patients and hospitalized patients whose COVID-19 tests results are still pending.
