There is already plenty on the agenda for next week, so we may have to wait until August for a breather.
In encouraging news, new COVID-19 cases in Arlington have continued to trend downward this week — expect an update on that either Monday or Tuesday. Will the trend last? Hard to tell, especially with cases in other parts of the region and the state on the rise.
