PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon officials are reporting 409 new coronavirus cases. The Oregon Health Authority on Saturday says the high number is partially due to a new reporting system that prevented the processing of some positive cases on Thursday. The state is reporting 11,851 cases overall of the virus with 232 deaths. The agency says since the state began reopening, spread of the virus has occurred at family celebrations for graduations, birthdays, weddings and holidays. The agency also says it has recorded outbreaks linked to exercise classes, fraternity parties and bachelor parties.
