Reston's Plague Year: Week 5 (Updated 4/24)

Fairfax County rapidly approaching 2,500 confirmed cases, with 80 deaths. Of those, 11 were in a Herndon long term care facility, and earlier in the week, a Lake Anne Fellowship House guard tested positive for COVID-19. Residents of the senior center have been told to stay in their apartments.

From the South Lakes High School Chorus, maybe the one good use for Zoom:

Metro Silver Line stations west of Falls Church will now be closed between Memorial Day and Labor Day to fix their little oopsies. Shuttle buses will take their place, and maybe this will cut down on one activity still happening nearby.

Lake Anne eatery Kalypso’s is beginning its “first phase of reopening” by offering delivery and curbside pickup. Other local businesses in the news are surviving and struggling in equal parts.

More in this vein:

Sorry, you lost us after "restocked hand sanitizer."

The Reston Association sent a letter updating what the organization is doing in response to COVID-19. Among the things: a "Flatten the Curve Virtual Race" and continuing the dredging operations at Lake Anne, as featured in this rad video featuring freakin' scuba divers:

Diver Down is still an awesome album.

Turns out COVID-19 isn't the only communicable disease we have to worry about:

Finally, a video from the Reston Museum in honor of Earth Day:

Stay safe out there, Reston.
