Coronavirus Outbreaks, Deaths and Cases Rise in Arlington, But There’s One Hopeful Sign

(Updated at 10:25 a.m.) The latest coronavirus data for Arlington seems like more bad news, though there’s at least one sign of possible light at the end of the tunnel.

As of Monday, the Virginia Dept. of Health reported 836 COVID-19 cases in Arlington, along with 32 deaths, 144 hospitalizations and 11 outbreaks. That’s up from 722 known cases, 120 hospitalizations, 24 deaths and 10 outbreaks on Friday.

The 8 additional deaths reported over the weekend represented an increase of 33%.

The additional outbreak was at another long-term care facility. As before, neither the state nor the county is revealing where the outbreaks have happened, nor providing other, more granular data.

Though Arlington’s case count keeps going up and there’s no sharp bend in the curve, at least one indicator is pointed in the right direction. A trailing 7-day tally of new cases, calculated by ARLnow, has gone down two days in a row. While that’s a potentially good sign, that figure has pointed down in the past before going back up.

On Friday Gov. Ralph Northam outlined a “blueprint” for a gradual reopening of business in Virginia, though at least one group urged more drastic actions to mitigate the spread of the virus.
