Eighty-three new coronavirus cases and four additional hospitalizations were reported in Arlington overnight.
Despite the dozens of new cases, Arlington’s trailing seven-day case average actually dipped slightly, to just over 60 cases per day. That’s down from the peak of around 75 average daily cases four days ago.
The seven-day hospitalization rate, meanwhile, ticked up by one, to 21. No new COVID-related deaths have been reported over the past week.
Arlington’s test positivity rate, after a big dip, is going back up: as of today it’s 5.5%, according to the Virginia Dept. of Health, up from 4.8% two days ago.
Statewide, the test positivity rate is higher — 8.3% and rising — and hospitalizations continue to increase.
“As the virus has surged throughout the state over the past month, the number of Virginians developing serious enough cases to be hospitalized has surged as well,” InsideNova reported yesterday. “As of Tuesday morning, a record 1,757 people were hospitalized across the state for COVID-19 treatment, according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association. That’s up 17% from just a week earlier.”
Amid the pandemic’s fall and winter rise, Arlington County is extending the hours of its Arlington Mill Community Center walk-up testing site along Columbia Pike.
New weekday hours — opening at noon rather than 1 p.m. — go into effect next week. The testing site will also be open this Saturday, and will extend the closing time until 7 p.m. over the next two Mondays.
More from Arlington’s emergency management office, via Twitter:
Starting next week, our COVID-19 sample collection site at Arlington Mill Community Center will open at noon. We're also hosting weekend testing this Saturday, 12/5, from 10am-2pm. While appointments aren't needed, preregistration is encouraged: https://t.co/2RzVfeXAMZ pic.twitter.com/snZSbcjWvs

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
