Coronavirus Cases in Arlington Continue Slow Rise

The number of new coronavirus cases reported overnight in Arlington was in the single digits for the third time in the past four days.

There are now 2,142 known COVID-19 cases in Arlington, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data, an increase of nine cases since Tuesday. Two additional hospitalizations were reported overnight, bringing the rolling seven-day total down to eight.

Three COVID-related deaths were reported, however, a reminder of the toll the virus takes, often delayed by weeks after initial symptom onset. There have been 120 deaths and a cumulative total of 379 hospitalizations in Arlington, according VDH.

Arlington’s seven-day average test positivity rate held steady from the day prior, at 9.6%. A total of 10,810 PCR-based coronavirus tests have been administered to county residents since the start of the local outbreak in March.

Much of Virginia is set to enter Phase 2 of the Commonwealth’s reopening on Friday, Gov. Ralph Northam announced Tuesday afternoon, though Northern Virginia will remain on Phase 1.
