An additional 108 coronavirus cases, 60 hospitalizations and 5 deaths have been reported in Arlington since Friday.
The latest figures from the Virginia Dept. of Health show a continued upward trajectory of cases in the county, with the steepest one-day rise in reported cases (55) yet on Sunday.
There are currently 593 COVID-19 cases, 110 hospitalizations and 20 deaths reported in Arlington, with 2,437 coronavirus tests completed. Statewide, there are 8,990 known cases, 1,500 hospitalizations, 300 deaths and 56,735 tests completed, according to VDH.
Public health officials, meanwhile, are urging people to continue social distancing, frequently washing hands, avoiding touching one’s face and wearing a mask while out in public.
Growing evidence suggests #COVID19 can spread before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) & from people who have #coronavirus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic). Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. See Q&A: https://t.co/7fj9qqUym8 pic.twitter.com/4FdyInGO3x
