ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It was a week for retrospectives, as we marked the one-year anniversary of the first coronavirus case in Arlington.

The virus has so far claimed 242 lives in Arlington County, but there’s hope that the quickening pace of vaccinations will help prevent the kind of mortality that we saw last spring and this past winter. There’s also hope that this spring and summer life will increasingly return to something approaching normal.

As the realization that COVID has been a part of our daily lives for more than a year continues to set in, here are the most-read ARLnow articles of the past five days.

  1. Motorcycle Club Pays Highlander Motor Inn One Last Visit
  2. Permit Approval Clears Way for Dominion Hills Mansion Demolition
  3. Controversial Dr. Seuss Titles to Remain at Library, But Won’t Be Replaced
  4. Fire on Top of High-Rise Condo in Rosslyn
  5. Demolition of Mid-Century Building Underway To Make Way for GMU’s Arlington Expansion
  6. Viral Outbreak Among Raccoons Prompts Warning for Pet Owners
  7. Leaders Say Arlington Has the Ecosystem to be the Next Austin or Miami
  8. New W&OD Trail Bridge in East Falls Church Opening Today
  9. New CVS in Crystal City Now Open, Solidcore to Open This Summer

Feel free to discuss those stories, or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
