MAINE UPDATE: The Maine Center for Disease Control today reported 174 new coronavirus cases and one COVID-related death. As the caseload continues to drop, restrictions around visitation at long term care facilities in Maine is easing. Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew says this is partly enabled by the vaccination effort taking place in our long-term care facilities. State officials say so far about 75% of Mainers age 70 and older have been vaccinated against the virus.
NEW BRUSNWICK UPDATE: Health officials in New Brunswick reported five new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, as the province’s active total rose to 37.
