After Holding Steady All Week, A Bump in New Cases Today

For the past two weeks, the seven-day moving average of new coronavirus cases in Arlington has kept a fairly tight range. Today, however, it is seeing something of a bump up.

Twenty-eight new cases were reported overnight, the highest one-day total since Aug. 28, bringing the seven-day average to 17. The seven-day total is now 119, after hovering around 100 all week.

Since Monday, one new COVID-related death and four new hospitalizations have been reported in Arlington. The seven-day total of new hospitalizations currently stands at 10.

The cumulative total of cases, hospitalizations and deaths since the start of the pandemic is now 3,819, 491, and 146, respectively, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data.

Over the past month, meanwhile, the age of new COVID-19 cases in the county has continued to skew younger, with the 0-9, 10-19 and 20-29 age groups showing the highest proportional increase since Aug. 19.
