For more than a month, Alexandria has experienced high COVID-19 transmission levels, but that isn’t stopping public events from happening.
Last week, the City Council unanimously voted to extend the state of emergency until January 31, 2022. Just days later, there was a large gathering for the unveiling of Friday night lights at Alexandria City High School, followed the next day by an art festival in Carlyle and Irish festival at Waterfront Park in Old Town. Residents are encouraged to wear face masks at the events, although it is not required.
Meanwhile, there has been another death. The death toll due to the virus now stands at 143. There are now 13,439 reported cases of the virus since the pandemic started in March 2020. There have also been 64 cases reported in Alexandria City Public Schools in September alone.
Alexandria’s seven-day average of positive COVID-19 tests remains at 3.4%, which is the same level that it was this time last week.
VDH says that unvaccinated Virginians make up a majority of new cases. So far, 89,804 residents have been fully vaccinated and 106,465 residents have been partially vaccinated. Nearly 66% of residents over the age of 18 have been vaccinated, and so have nearly 79% of seniors.
The only localities in Virginia not seeing high transmission are Manassas Park and Fairfax City, which are both seeing moderate transmission.
