Arlington is a world-class community and tourist destination located just five miles from the heart of the nation’s capital. It’s the geographically smallest self-governing county in the U.S., occupying slightly less than 26 square miles. Arlington maintains a rich variety of stable neighborhoods, quality schools and enlightened land use. Home to some of the most influential organizations in the world — including the Pentagon — Arlington stands out as one of America’s preeminent places to live, visit and do business. For current demographic information, see the Arlington County Profile: https://projects.arlingtonva.us/data-research/

Arlington Seeks to Enforce Physical Distancing, Limit Congregating on Posted Sidewalks, Streets - Newsroom

The County Board adopted an emergency ordinance prohibiting groups of more than three people from congregating on streets and sidewalks posted with the restrictions, and requiring pedestrians to maintain at least six feet of physical separation from others on the posted streets and sidewalks. Violators could face a traffic fine of up to $100. In adopting the measure, the Board cited the difficulty of securing voluntary compliance with social distancing requirements as coronavirus cases surge nationwide. http://ow.ly/oJUI50AO8xH

Enforcement will begin after a period of outreach and education, and after signs are posted in the areas of enforcement.

Arlington County will ticket pedestrians who fail to socially distance on public streets.

Will Arlington have "drop boxes" for those of us who vote by mail?
you guys really need a warning when entering your county on exactly who will be protected while visiting your city..cause when people inside of a closed business are arrested for shooting people breaking into the store and rapist are allowed out of jail to murder their victim you are one screwed up system that really needs to abolish your government...
WOW!! If you live in ARLINGTON, VA., and an armed intruder breaks in your home,...the D.A. there will have you arrested on felony charges, if you defend your life!! So if armed intruders DO break in your home,..and you have to shoot them,...call your lawyer before you call the authorities. Cuz the ONLY other way you don't get arrested,..is if you: -Let the violent criminal kill you. or -You take out the Intruder, then call a BACKHOE service, rather than the authorities..
"we need to have our gun laws consistent in NoVA” Couldn’t agree more. 91 out of 95 counties, 16 out of 38 independent cities, and 41 towns have adopted Second Amendment sanctuary (or other pro-Second Amendment) resolutions. I look forward to you joining them.
