Northern Virginia’s COVID-19 Transmission Rate Keeps Going Up

Virginia’s level of community transmission of the coronavirus continues to rise in Northern Virginia and the rest of the state, health department officials said Tuesday.

In Northern Virginia, the Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William health districts each have seven-day average test positivity rates above the key threshold of 5% and Arlington is approaching that level, InsideNoVa reported, citing the health department’s weekly analysis.

Though Northern Virginia’s rate is still moderate, the region’s community transmission is edging toward the high end of the range, InsideNoVa reported.

Nevertheless, Northern Virginia reported fewer than 300 cases Tuesday for the first time in eight days with 276 new infections and the region’s seven-day average went down slightly to 317.6.

Virginia’s overall seven-day average test positivity rate decreased slightly to 5.7%, but is still much higher than the 4.5% reached on several occasions during a 22-day run in late September and early October during which the rate stayed below 5%, InsideNoVa reported.
