For the fourth time in the past five days, the number of new coronavirus infections reported in Arlington today was in the single-digits.
The seven new confirmed COVID-19 cases recorded overnight brings the county’s cumulative total to 2,438 and its trailing seven-day total to 66, the lowest point since late March.
Only one new COVID hospitalization was reported today, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data. It has been a week since the last time the county’s coronavirus death count changed — it currently stands at 126.
The demographics of those getting sick, meanwhile, have been shifting younger. Those ages 10-29 accounted for 18.6% of all reported infections in Arlington four weeks ago. As of Tuesday, that age range accounted for 20.6% of all cases, with the 20-29 range responsible for the biggest shift.
By contrast, the proportion of infections among those ages 30-39 has not changed. Infections among those ages 60+ have decreased from 28.8% to 26.9% of all local cases.
All of Virginia is set to enter Phase 3 of the reopening next Wednesday, July 1.
