It was another busy week in Arlington, but one bit of good news held up for the entire week: Arlington’s coronavirus prognosis continues to look good.
With relatively few new infections and an improving local economic outlook, there’s reason for optimism. But as Texas and Florida shows, there remains a possibility that the virus could come back and disrupt Arlington’s economy anew.
That’s all the more reason to wear a mask while indoors in a public place or outdoors in a crowd.
