Oregon reports 536 new COVID-19 cases, five more deaths

Nearly a quarter of a million Oregonians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of Feb. 20.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on Saturday reported 536 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the state's total case count to 152,711 cases during the pandemic. 

OHA also reported five more coronavirus deaths. The state's death toll is now 2,154 people. 

Umatilla County reported the most new cases Saturday with 72 followed by Multnomah County with 69 and Washington County with 66. Umatilla County's case count was higher than expected because of about 1,400 backlogged test results received on Friday, Feb. 19, that hadn't been reported to OHA. 

Here's a county-by-county breakdown of the new cases: 

Baker (4), Benton (5), Clackamas (26), Clatsop (2), Columbia (10), Coos (14), Crook (5), Curry (7),  Deschutes (15), Douglas (20), Hood River (2), Jackson (38), Jefferson (4), Josephine (18), Klamath (5), Lake (5), Lane (41), Lincoln (1), Linn (6), Malheur (5), Marion (55), Morrow (6), Multnomah (69), Polk (15), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (72), Union (1), Wallowa (1), Washington (66) and Yamhill (17).
