The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) now provides an option to observe positive coronavirus cases by individual zip codes, shedding light on where in Buckingham each of the county’s current 347 VDH-reported cases are coming from.

Following is a comprehensive list of COVID-19 case counts by zip code in Buckingham County. Zip codes listed as “suppressed” mean the district has seen between one and four cases and the specific number is blocked to protect privacy and personal health information. It is important to note that zip codes sometimes cross county lines and that these numbers may not exactly match up with the total number of cases reported in the county.
