New Coronavirus Infections in Arlington Remain Low, As Demographics Skew Younger

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.
