Morning Poll: Are You Taking More Precautions Due to the Delta Variant?

Arlington might not be as hard-hit as places with lower vaccination rates, but the delta variant of the coronavirus is still infecting dozens of people a day in the county.

The latest data from the Virginia Dept. of Health shows the seven-day trailing average of new infections in Arlington ticking up from 32 to 36 cases per day since Tuesday.

With elevated infection rates but relatively low hospitalization rates in Arlington, we’re wondering whether locals have started taking more precautions over the past month or so.

Have you been more diligent about masking up, social distancing, or avoiding crowds since cases started rising two months ago? Or have you gone about your daily life much as before, putting trust in the vaccine and its ability to protect against infections or against serious illness in the event of breakthrough cases?

Let’s find out where the community currently stands.
