Maine is reporting another 799 coronavirus cases on Saturday.

That brings the seven-day average of new cases down to 482, although that includes three days in which the Maine CDC didn't post COVID-19 data because of the weekend and holiday.

The state is also reporting 10 more deaths from COVID-19.

More Maine residents — 248 — were hospitalized with COVID-19 on Friday than on any previous day in the pandemic.
