Maine CDC Reports 30 New COVID-19 Cases and No Additional Deaths
According to the Maine CDC's Monday update, the cumulative number of COVID-19 cases in Maine is now at 68,262, an increase of 30 since Sunday and the lowest numbers of cases reported in one day since October 20. No additional deaths were reported of an individual with COVID-19, keeping the total number of deaths to 839. 2,039 patients have had to be hospitalized at some point. 61 are currently hospitalized with 26 in intensive care and 15 on a ventilator.
724,806 Mainers have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 720,438 have completed their vaccination series. That equates to approximately 54% of all Mainers who are fully vaccinated and 54% who have received at least the first of two doses of the vaccine. Over 1.4 million doses in total have been given to Mainers.
All business capacity limits and requirements to physically distance in all indoor and outdoor settings were lifted on May 24. On that day, State mask requirements were lifted as well for those that are fully vaccinated, though private businesses can still require those entering to wear masks.
Governor Mills has renewed the State of Emergency in Maine through June 12, allowing Maine to continue receiving federal funding and using available resources to respond to COVID-19.
