(Updated at 11:25 a.m.) After rising above 300 to end the month of May, the rolling seven-day new coronavirus case total in Arlington has dropped precipitously.
A total of 84 cases have been reported over the past seven days — 12 per day, on average — according to the latest Virginia Dept. of Health data. Twenty-three new COVID-19 cases were reported overnight, only the second double-digit daily case count in Arlington since May 31.
One new hospitalization was reported overnight, for a cumulative total of 385, and one new death was recorded, for a total of 121. The seven-day rolling total of new hospitalizations currently stands at 13.
Arlington’s seven-day moving average test positivity rate is now just below 7%, while the daily testing average is continuing to fall — it’s now 282 — since last week’s free mass testing event boosted the county’s test counts.
