Maine had its highest single-day jump in Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, according to the state's Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The state had 127 new cases on Monday -- beating the previous record of 103, which was set on Friday -- according to Maine CDC spokesman Robert Long.
The data is telling us our nation is off-course," Gov. Janet Mills said during a press conference on Monday.
Maine has responded by lowering indoor gathering limits and postponing bar re-openings, among other restrictions, the governor added.
The state's seven-day positivity rate doubled over the past week to 1.06%, according to Mills.
Maine's Department of Health and Human Services reported five new hospitalizations due to Covid-19, with 29 people hospitalized in total.
