After a week-long dip in cases, Arlington’s already-high average daily case count is heading back up.

The county recorded 154 coronavirus cases on Sunday alone, a new record. Today (Monday) the cumulative case count crossed 8,000, with 79 new cases, bringing the seven-day trailing average to 84.4 cases per day.

One new COVID-related death and one new hospitalization were reported over the weekend. The seven-day hospitalization total in Arlington is currently 22, unchanged from Friday.
