Golden, Colo. (AP) - Jefferson County health officials say the first human West Nile case of the year has been confirmed.

Colorado's first mosquito with West Nile was confirmed in early June in Fort Collins. Health officials say residents should take normal precautions to reduce mosquito populations.
