JUST IN: Rate of new Covid cases in Arlington reaches highest point since February

Arlington County is seeing a post-Thanksgiving surge in reported Covid cases.

The seven-day moving average of new daily cases is now 51, up from around 23 cases per day as of the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That’s the highest point since mid-February, as mass vaccinations were just getting underway and cases were coming down from a pandemic high of 123 cases per day in January.

Arlington’s test positivity rate, meanwhile, has risen from 2.5% just before Thanksgiving to 3.8% over the weekend, the highest point since August.

The rise in cases comes amid an increase nationally, with the delta variant account for most of the rise but amid worries of the new omicron variant fueling a further surge in cases this winter.

In highly-vaccinated Arlington, the good news is that thus far reports of serious illness remain relatively low. Since Thanksgiving only one new Covid-related hospitalization and one new death have been reported, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
