University of Maine System COVID Data by Campus 

The Together For Maine Update for 9/8/20 is also posted online

9 — Known Cases of UMS students or employees in ME CDC Isolation

  • 6 UMaine:  2 students released from isolation
  • 1 UMFK: 
  • 2 USM: 

There are no known cases at the other University of Maine System universities. 

The above Data reflects ACTIVE known cases identified through the UMS asymptomatic screening and other testing venues.  When an individual is released from an isolation order by the Maine CDC the active case number shared in the Together for Maine daily update is reduced to reflect that change.  UMS is reporting 9 known cases today, 2 fewer than the number reported in the  9/7/20 update.
