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.
