The average rate of new Covid cases in Arlington has fallen nearly 40% since peaking eight days ago.

That’s according to the latest Virginia Dept. of Health data, which is in line with regional trends that show cases falling in D.C., Alexandria, Fairfax County, and Montgomery County (Md.), among other Washington area localities.

VDH is reporting a seven-day moving average of 396 cases per day in Arlington, down from 646 per day at the Jan. 12 peak. Today 363 cases were reported — prior to the current Omicron-variant-fueled surge in cases, that would have been nearly twice the previous single-day case record from January 2021.

Arlington’s test positivity rate is also steadily falling, reaching 22.1% today, down from the Jan. 2 peak of 29.3%.

Hospitalizations remain elevated, with a seven-day moving average of four Covid-related hospitalizations per day as of today. That’s down from five per day on Sunday.

So far in January, there have been 62 Covid-related hospitalizations and a net of three reported deaths in Arlington, according to VDH.

Currently, 95.1% of Arlington’s adult population has received at least one vaccination dose.
