PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton Roads had another record setting day of new COVID-19 cases on Monday, accounting for more than half of the state’s overall new daily cases.

Multiple localities reported a record high in cases, including 157 in Virginia Beach, 96 in Newport News and 73 in Chesapeake.

The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission tracks the cases daily on their website as well, with charts of cases, deaths and hospitalizations.

According to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association, 1,129 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 test results are still pending.

On Friday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said modifications to state coronavirus reopening guidelines may be made as Hampton Roads continues to see increases, including reducing the cap on gatherings, which is currently at 250 people, and restrictions on restaurants and bars.

He’s expected to provide updates during a briefing Tuesday at 2 p.m.
