Officials with the Mesa County Health Department say a woman in her 30s has been hospitalized with a confirmed case of H1N1 virus.

The woman apparently has underlying health conditions.

The case is the third confirmed in Mesa County, the second where the victim had to be hospitalized. Earlier this week a 5-year-old boy was hospitalized with the virus.

Officials say the number of confirmed cases is only a small portion of those who have the disease.

11 News will have more on a response plan put together by the Mesa County Health Department and School District 51 tonight at 5:30 p.m.
