What Maine town had the highest rate of COVID cases last week? That would be Sanford with 58 cases per 1000 people. Westbrook is second and Portland is third with 52 cases per thousand. For comparison sake, the Westbrook rate of cases is about the same as the Financial District in New York City. Not bad considering the trouble spots in New York City, like Brooklyn, are over 90 people per one thousand. Queens is over 125 people per thousand. The Lower East Side of NYC is in the area of many Maine towns at about 35 COVID cased per thousand people. You can see the cases per thousand people for your Maine town and the entire interactive map HERE.
