Arlington Coronavirus Cases Continue Upward Trajectory

Arlington’s rate of new coronavirus cases continues to rise.

Fifteen new COVID-19 cases were reported overnight, bringing the county’s seven-day trailing infection rate to 82, the highest point since June 20.

Two new hospitalizations were reported in Arlington overnight, though the trailing seven-day hospitalization total remains just four. One additional COVID-related death was reported, bringing the total to 133.

Total confirmed infections in Arlington are now 2,582, while cumulative hospitalizations stand at 425, according to the latest Virginia Dept. of Health data.

Arlington’s testing rate, excluding mass testing events, has remained fairly steady, around 250 reported PCR-based tests per day. The test positivity rate has risen from a low of 2.5% to, as of Friday morning, 5.2%.

Nearly 60,000 new coronavirus cases were reported in the U.S. on Thursday, the sixth single-day record in 10 days, the New York Times reported.

Arlington County is planning a virtual town hall today from 12:30-1:30 p.m. to provide an update on the county’s response to the pandemic.
