The Maine CDC added 303 cases of COVID-19 to the state's total on Sunday.

That's shy of the state's 7-day average of 350 cases. The state has also averaged 320 daily cases since the start of the month.

No new deaths were added. Since Dec. 1, 63 Mainers have died with the disease.

The state added seven deaths on Saturday — all women ranging in age from their 50s to their 90s. Three of the women were from Cumberland County and four were from York.

Since the start of the pandemic in March, 15,923 Mainers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and 257 have died.
