Maine's New Coronavirus Case Count Remains Slightly Elevated On Friday
Maine is again reporting a slightly higher number of daily coronavirus cases.
The state CDC is reporting 45 new infections on Friday, and the seven-day average of new cases has now topped 25 for the first time since late June.
The state is also reporting one new death from the disease.
Twenty-nine people were hospitalized with COVID-19 as of Thursday morning. Fifteen were in critical care and six were on ventilators.
The Maine CDC reports that just about 60% of Maine residents are now vaccinated against the disease. That number rises to 68% for those eligible to receive the shots.
