At least two more cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Colorado, bringing the total to six.

State officials say the two cases, confirmed Monday, are in Eagle and Adams counties. The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported a third new case on Monday, which would bring Colorado's total to seven, but the State Department of Public Health and Environment says that person is being retested.

The State Health Department says it plans to start doing Swine Flu tests in Colorado by midweek, instead of sending samples to the CDC. That would speed up the process of confirming whether someone has the illness.

The CDC says 286 cases of swine flu have been confirmed nationwide, including the Colorado case that's being retested.
