University of Maine System COVID Data by Campus

Please contact with any questions.

32 — Known cases of University of Maine System (UMS) students or employees among the more than 30,000 students, faculty, and staff in the University of Maine System community. These data would also include university students or employees known to have an active case of COVID-19, but not necessarily living in the campus region or state.

  • 11 University of Maine
  • 4 University of Maine at Augusta
  • 5 University of Maine at Farmington
  • 2 University of Maine at Fort Kent
  • 3 University of Maine at Machias
  • 0 University of Maine at Presque Isle
  • 7 University of Southern Maine

The above data reflect active known cases identified through the UMS asymptomatic screening and verified self-reports of University students, faculty, and staff from independent testing. When an individual completes the isolation period, the active case number shared in the Together for Maine daily update is reduced to reflect that change.

UMS is reporting 32 known cases today, 5 more cases than reported in the last update. Today’s data reflects 8 new cases and 3 completions of isolation since the last update. Prior updates are archived at the Together for Maine website.

  • 97.5% of UMS students living on campus have verified their vaccination status, as of 10/13/21
  • 89.7% of UMS full-time employees have verified their vaccination status, as of 10/13/21
  • 99% of university-administered quarantine space currently available
  • 99% of university-administered isolation spaces available

COVID Compliance Activities

471 students need to act by Oct. 15 to come into compliance with vaccination and testing requirements or risk being withdrawn from courses by Oct. 31 without a refund. That is down from the 1,087 students reported when UMS outlined the outreach and support initiatives being utilized to help students meet safety mandates. Please see Compliance Campaign Hits Final Stage Sept. 30, 2021.
