The stock market drop aside, some other falling figures in Arlington today are actually good news.
The average rate of new Covid cases and hospitalizations are on a downward trajectory, as is the county’s test positivity rate.
The seven-day moving average case rate has fallen 30% from its 200 cases per day seasonal peak on May 25, reaching 140 daily cases today, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data.
Arlington’s test positivity rate has been slower to fall, but is now 14.4%, down from a seasonal peak of 16.2% one week prior, according to VDH.
Hospitalizations, meanwhile, are also dropping. According to CDC data, Arlington is currently seeing 5.5 weekly hospital admissions for Covid per 100,000 residents, down from 7.7 two weeks ago. The county remains in the CDC’s “medium” Covid level due to a weekly case rate per 100,000 residents that’s still more than double the agency’s threshold for what would be considered “low.”
