Arlington, VA

On a Wednesday four weeks ago — which seems like a lifetime ago — Arlington had 36 known cases of COVID-19 and ARLnow conducted an unscientific poll.

Of nearly 2,800 respondents, 0.76% said they had tested positive for COVID, 4.4% said they had COVID-like symptoms, and 11.6% said they had a close personal connection who had tested positive.

It’s now April 22 and as of Tuesday there were 625 known coronavirus cases in Arlington. Let’s conduct the same poll and see (again, unscientifically) where we stand.

Please answer honestly and select the options that apply to you. Note that the typical symptoms of COVID-19 are cough, fever, tiredness and — in more serious cases — difficulty breathing. Loss of taste and smell is also a common symptom.

As before, you should not use this poll response data for policy decision-making — but do use it as a reminder of the importance of social distancing, practicing good hygiene, wearing a face mask when out, and flattening the curve.
