With Alexandria’s recorded COVID-19 cases at an all-time high, some changes have been made to the installation of the new City Council on Monday.
According to an email from the City of Alexandria, the location has been moved from Alexandria City High School to the Council Chamber in City Hall.
“The candidates elected by Alexandria voters in November to serve as Mayor and members of City Council will be formally installed at a public meeting on Monday, January 3, 2022, at 6 p.m,” the press release said. “The installation meeting has been moved to City Hall in Council Chamber to prevent further spread of COVID-19 while Alexandria is experiencing its highest number of new COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. Due to physical distancing requirements, there will be very limited in-person seating available in Council Chamber.”
COVID-19 cases spiked around Christmas with 376 new cases reported. The increase is due in part to the more infectious omicron variant and due to an increase in the number of people testing around the holidays.
Those hoping to watch the installation are encouraged to watch the meeting online. It will be streamed live on the city website, via Zoom and by broadcast on Comcast cable channel 70/1084. A video will also be posted the next day.
