No New Coronavirus Deaths Reported Over the Weekend

Arlington’s coronavirus data continues to look good, even while a resurgence of cases in the U.S. and China weighs on the stock market.

“The second wave has begun,” one medical school professor told CNBC today. But even while 22 states — mostly in the west and the Sun Belt — report an acceleration of new cases, Arlington and Virginia are looking to be in good shape, for now.

No new COVID-19 deaths were reported in Arlington over the weekend. In fact, no new COVID-19 deaths were reported in all of Northern Virginia on Sunday, the first time that has happened since April 6.

As of Monday morning, Arlington has reported a cumulative total of 2,346 cases, 405 hospitalizations and 125 deaths. The seven-day trailing total of new cases and hospitalizations now stands at 90 and 13 respectively.

Arlington and Northern Virginia entered “Phase 2” of the reopening on Friday, allowing restaurants and gyms to open indoor spaces for the first time since March.

Arlington’s seven-day trailing average daily testing and positivity rates, meanwhile, currently stand at 220 tests per day and 6.6% respectively. The latter represents a new low in the county’s test positivity rate.
