Coronavirus Cases Continue Slow Increase in Arlington

For now, the coronavirus epidemic in Arlington appears to be largely under control, albeit still infecting new patients.

Overnight the Virginia Dept. of Health reported eight new cases, one new hospitalization and one new death in Arlington. The trailing seven-day total of new cases and hospitalizations is 134 and 12 respectively.

Hospitalizations previously peaked at 92 per week.

Testing has ticked down but the positivity rate remains under 10%. There are about 225 PCR-based tests being conducted each day in the county, and the current seven-day moving average positivity rate is 8.2%

Statewide, the rate of new daily cases continues to fall in Virginia, despite a rise in hospitalizations in a dozen states across the country.

In Arlington, there have been a cumulative total of 2,307 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 397 hospitalizations and 125 deaths as of Friday morning.
