(STACKER) — As has been true throughout America’s COVID-19 history, every state—and every county therein—has its own COVID-19 story, driven by local policies and behaviors.

The United States as of Nov. 9 had reached 756,138 COVID-19-related deaths and 46.6 million COVID-19 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.

As of Feb. 2, more Americans had been vaccinated for COVID-19 than had been infected. But, as vaccination rates lagged over the summer, new surges of COVID-19 came. More than 80% of these cases by late July were caused by the Delta variant, which is more contagious than the original virus. This has resulted in growing rates of community transmission and—especially in areas with lower vaccination rates—increasing rates of hospitalization and death.

Stacker compiled a list of the counties with highest COVID-19 infection rates in Virginia using data from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Counties are ranked by the highest infection rate per 100k residents as of Nov. 8, 2021. Cumulative cases per 100k served as a tiebreaker.

Keep reading to see if where you live ranks among the highest COVID-19 infection rates in Virginia.
