Maine is seeing another record number of new daily cases of COVID-19. The state CDC is reporting 127 new cases on Tuesday.

All but one county in the state are reporting increases — with the exception of Piscataquis County. The largest is in Cumberland County, where there are 46 additional cases.

The number of deaths remains at 148. The total number of active cases across Maine is 1,146.

Maine’s positivity rate has doubled in the past week and is at 1 percent. The last time the state had a positivity rate that high was in late July.

There are currently 29 people hospitalized. Eight are in critical care and one person is on a ventilator.

Correction: Piscataquis County saw no case increase.
