Sentara has launched a new public dashboard that tracks the number of confirmed COVID-19 patients by hospital location. This tool is to help the public understand trends of COVID-19 hospitalizations in their community. The data is updated daily, Monday to Friday. Data from these dashboards can help showcase current hospitalization trends among COVID-19 patients, and the percent of COVID-19 patients out of the total number of hospitalized inpatients.

You can access the COVID -19 hospitalized patient dashboard here.

Patients are encouraged to seek care at the appropriate medical facility to help avoid long wait times at the
Emergency Department. If you need a COVID-19 test and are not experiencing severe symptoms, please do not go to the Emergency Department for a test. More information on where to safely seek care can be found here.

There continues to be a high number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients across Sentara Healthcare. The large majority of those hospitalized with COVID-19 are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated. This trend is occurring across the nation. The increase in hospital capacities – which are compounded by COVID-19 but not due solely to COVID-19 – and nationwide staffing challenges are leading to longer wait times for all patients, especially in Emergency Departments, and increased workloads for healthcare heroes who have endured the brunt and burden of this pandemic over the last 18 months.
