University of Maine System COVID Data by Campus 

22 — Known Case of UMS students or employees in public health agency isolation among the more than 30,000 students, faculty, and staff in the University of Maine System community.  

The University of Maine System has now completed the Fall 2020 semester.  These data would include university students or employees known to have an active case of COVID-19 but not necessarily living in the campus region or state.

  • 21 UMaine:
  • 0 UMA: 
  • 0 UMF:  
  • 0 UMFK: 
  • 0 UMM:  
  • 1 UMPI: 
  • 0 USM:

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 a public health agency the active case number shared in the Together for Maine daily update is reduced to reflect that change.  UMS is reporting 22 known cases today, 8 cases fewer than the cases reported in the 12/18/20 update.

  • None of the active cases are residential students;
