(Updated at 11:20 a.m.) As of this morning, the cumulative total of coronavirus cases in Arlington is now above 4,000.
The cases rose from 3,997 to 4,009 overnight, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data. The trailing seven-day total of new cases in Arlington continues to fluctuate and is now down to 100, after reaching 130 on Tuesday.
Local hospitalizations and deaths both rose overnight. Three new COVID-related hospitalizations and one new death were reported, bringing the cumulative total of both to 503 and 151, respectively. The county has recorded five new hospitalizations over the past seven days.
Arlington’s test positivity rate, meanwhile, has fallen slightly, to 2.9%. That compares to the statewide rate, which has also been falling and is now 4.5%.
Following the news of the President and First Lady testing positive for COVID-19, both of Virginia’s U.S. senators have wished the first couple well.
Wishing the President and the First Lady a speedy recovery from COVID-19. This is another reminder to us all to take this virus seriously.

I wish the President and First Lady a speedy recovery. Having had COVID-19, let me stress: all need to take this seriously. Please follow CDC guidelines of mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), who spent much of the morning tweeting about the latest payroll and unemployment numbers, weighed in a bit after the initial publication of this article.
My best wishes for a speedy recovery to the President, the First Lady, Hope Hicks, Ronna McDaniel, and the millions dealing with this terrible disease.
COVID-19 spares no one, and we all must do our best to look out for the health and safety of one another.
Please wear a mask.
