Seven-Day Coronavirus Case Total Dips to Double Digits

The rolling seven-day total of new coronavirus cases in Arlington dipped into the double digits over the weekend.

Fifty-one new COVID-19 cases have been reported since Friday, bringing the current seven-day total to 96. That’s down from 175 three weeks ago. On Monday the seven-day total reached 85, the lowest mark since July 26.

Arlington’s test positivity rate has also dipped recently and is currently 4.4%, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data.

New COVID-related hospitalizations have continued, however. Six hospitalizations were reported over the holiday weekend, bringing the rolling seven-day total to 11, which is down from a summer high of 18 on Aug. 31. One new COVID-related death was also reported over the weekend.

The cumulative total of cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the county currently stands at 3,656, 478 and 143, respectively.
