Rate of New Coronavirus Cases Rising Again in Arlington

The trailing seven-day rate of new coronavirus cases in Arlington is back into the triple digits.

Twenty-three new cases were reported overnight, bringing the seven-day total of new cases to 114. One new COVID-related death was reported in the county, the first in two weeks. Three new hospitalizations have been reported over the past two days.

About three-fifths of new cases are among those ages 20-39.

The cumulative total of coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths among Arlington residents now stands at 2,897, 434 and 136, according to the Virginia Dept. of Health.

New cases in Northern Virginia as a whole remain relatively steady, averaging about 200 new cases per day. The rest of the state has seen a significant rise in new cases, prompting Gov. Ralph Northam to impose new restrictions in the Hampton Roads area this week.
