Mesa County health officials say Swine Flu has come to Mesa County.

According to the Mesa County Health Department, it has been confirmed that a young adult who became ill after attending a wedding at Powderhorn Ski Resort last weekend has Swine Flu.

They say this person and others who got sick after attending the event is believed to have been linked to increased Swine Flu activity in Utah.
