Tuesday’s report brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Maine to 101,849, according to the Maine CDC. That’s up from 100,967 on Saturday.

The number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the past 14 days statewide is 6,909. This is an estimation of the current number of active cases in the state, as the Maine CDC is no longer tracking recoveries for all patients. That’s up from 6,019 on Saturday.
