Alexandria Now Has 170 COVID-19 Cases, City Asks Residents Not to Gather for Easter

Alexandria now has 170 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19, an addition of 21 cases since yesterday.

The first and only death of a city resident due to the virus was announced on April 6, and the Alexandria Health Department did not release any information regarding the resident.

As Easter approaches this Sunday, the city is advising residents to not observe in-person religious gatherings or meals.

“This means it is dangerous and illegal to have a home meal with more than 10 people who are not already family members living together, or for more than 10 people to gather for services,” the city advised in a news release. “To protect their congregations and communities, many services in Alexandria and around the world are being conducted online. Contact your place of worship or associated organizations to find out if such alternatives are available.”

The full breakdown in Alexandria is below:

There have been 109 deaths and there are now more than 4,000 cases in Virginia, according to the Virginia Department of Health.
