ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Another week of business as abnormal has come and gone, as Arlington continues to adjust to life during a pandemic and prepare for a gradual reopening of the state.

Not helping matters is the generally wet and cool weather, which has been keeping people inside when the outdoors and sunshine might be what we need most right now — other than a vaccine, obviously. More May-like temperatures appear to be a week away.

Here are the most-read articles of the past week on ARLnow:

  1. Grocery Store Fight Leads to Suspect Stop on Route 50
  2. Zip Code Data Shows Elevated Case Level Along Columbia Pike
  3. What’s Next: Virginia Reopening as Cases Hit Peak in Arlington
  4. Arlington Coronavirus Cases Up 135 Since Friday (May 4)
  5. Arlington’s Mexican Restaurants Were Swarmed on Cinco de Mayo
  6. Governor: Easing of Business Closures May Be in Sight
  7. New Mexican Restaurant Opening Tuesday in Shirlington
  8. New Ballston Quarter Promotions Aim to Support Restaurants and Food Banks
  9. Nationwide Search Finds New APS Superintendent in Fairfax County

Feel free to discuss those or any other topics of local interest in the comments.

And for your weekend viewing, here is a video conversation we had with Arlington Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kate Bates last night.
