Rate of New Coronavirus Cases in Arlington Highest Since August

(Updated at 12:10 p.m.) The rate of new coronavirus cases in Arlington has reached the highest point since August.

Twenty-two new cases were reported in the county on Monday, bringing Arlington’s seven-day moving average of new daily cases to 21.7. That’s the highest point since Aug. 31.

Despite the recent rise in cases, it has been a week since the last COVID-related death was reported in the county. The seven-day rate of new hospitalizations currently stands at four, remaining in the single digits since mid-September. And Arlington’s current test positivity rate is a relatively low 3.3%, the same as it was last Thursday.

Arlington’s cumulative total of cases, hospitalizations and deaths is 4,209, 511 and 152, respectively.

No new data was available today (Tuesday) from the Virginia Dept. of Health, due to a fiber optic cable cut that also brought down Virginia’s online voter registration system, on the last day of voter registration in the state.

As of Monday the test positivity rates in neighboring Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria hit new lows, of 3.6% and 3.7% respectively, according to InsideNova. After a bump in new cases statewide last week, the trend moderated a bit on Sunday and Monday, the site reported.

There has been a multi-day downward trend in coronavirus cases across the U.S., but rising levels in the Midwest. In Europe, meanwhile, a “second wave” of the virus has prompted new restrictions.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
