(EDITOR'S NOTE: For reporting purposes, case counts are actually tabulated the prior day and those tabulations are often adjusted up or down. This is due to Maine CDC investigators determining which actual new or current cases may not qualify to be classified as COVID-19 cases, especially when it comes to probable cases. Some days are actually adjusted upward, while cases are more often revised downward upon subsequent investigations. Therefore, The Maine Edge uses adjusted net figures first when determining actual daily variances instead of the number of newly reported cases that may end up not qualifying or being adjusted. In the case of a prior day's figures being revised upward, both will be included since the prior day was underreported.)

DAILY UPDATE: Current information as of 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 9 with CDC data as of 11:59 p.m. Monday, March 8. Some figures have been updated due to newly obtained data.

AUGUSTA - New cases related to COVID-19 continued to post more moderate gains on Tuesday when 133 new cases were reported across the state, which brought Maine’s total case count above the 46K mark to 46,059. Following two straight weeks of week-over-week increases, the increases over Monday and Tuesday fell by about 40 from the previous week’s two-day span, according to data from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC).
