As Virginia moves towards reopening, the number of coronavirus cases in the state has risen above another milestone: there are now more than 20,000 known cases in the state.

The latest Virginia Dept. of Health data reports 20,256 cases, 2,773 hospitalizations, 713 deaths and 127,938 tests administered.

In Arlington, 30 additional COVID-19 cases and two additional deaths were recorded overnight. VDH now reports 1,169 cases, 196 hospitalizations and 49 deaths.

Amid the continues health and economic hardship, today has been declared #GivingTuesdayNow — “a global day of unity to take place on May 5, 2020, as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.” Volunteer Arlington has a list of local nonprofits that can use your help today and throughout the coronavirus crisis; the Arlington Community Foundation is also asking for donations to help replenish its COVID response fund.
