Arlington is continuing to see a rise in COVID-19 cases, with a 7-day average at 27, the highest it has been since April. And according to the CDC, Arlington remains in a Level of Community Transmission.

To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, Arlington County advises following the updates guidance from CDC, which recommends wearing a mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status.

"In addition to masking per CDC guidance, we strongly encourage our residents who are not vaccinated to get vaccinated," said Dr. Reuben Varghese, Arlington County Health Director. "Vaccination is the most important public health action to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Getting fully vaccinated significantly reduces the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death, even with the Delta variant."

Need a vaccine? The clinics at Arlington Mill and Walter Reed Community Centers are open 7 days a week -- no appointment needed. The vaccines are FREE, safe and effective. https://arlingtonva.us/covid-19/vaccines/registration/

Or find a clinic near you at https://www.vaccines.gov/

Need a COVID-19 test? Arlington has three Curative testing kiosks, open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. No appointments required, though they are encouraged to help reduce wait times: https://curative.com/

Public Health reminds residents that multiple layers of protection is an effective way to reduce the risk of COVID-19:

- Choose outdoor gatherings over indoor gatherings
- Get tested when symptomatic
- Wear a mask and physically distancing
- Wash hands
- Get a vaccine

Governor Ralph Northam announced appointments to the three newly-created boards responsible for overseeing the legalization of recreational ma*****na in the Commonwealth. “#Virginia is committed to legalizing cannabis the right way—by learning from other states, by listening to public health and safety experts, and by centering social equity. There is a tremendous amount of work ahead to establish an adult-use ma*****na market in our Commonwealth, and I am proud to appoint these talented Virginians who will bring diverse backgrounds, an incredible depth of expertise, and a shared commitment to public service to this important effort,” said Governor Northam. Our Executive Director, Jorge E. Figueredo, was appointed as a member of the Cannabis Equity Reinvestment Board, which will serve as an important voice for Virginians and help elevate resources to the persons, communities, and families most negatively impacted by the disparate enforcement of ma*****na laws and ensure that equity remains at the forefront of legalization in Virginia. Congratulations! To read more please visit
