There has been another death and 137 new cases of the virus in Alexandria over the last week, bringing the total number of deaths to 185 and the number of cases to 29,946, according to the Virginia Department of Health.
Still, the pandemic is winding down in Alexandria. One of the biggest signs is the fact that it’s been nearly two weeks since the Alexandria Health Department last posted a COVID-19 update. The city last released Covid information on March 8 — a stark difference from nearly two years of daily updates from the city, and a surge in January that saw a record-setting 12,822 positive cases.
Additionally, as of March 15, VDH no longer publishes its Level of Community Transmission dashboard, and community transmission is now determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which gave Alexandria a “Low” transmission rating at the end of February.
Mayor Justin Wilson has also not mentioned Covid on social media since March 11.
There have also been 618 cases reported within Alexandria City Public Schools since Dec. 1, an increase of 15 cases. Of those, 529 are children and 107 are staff, although the numbers listed on the school system’s dashboard don’t add up.
Alexandria remains in a state of emergency until June 30.
