Health officials have confirmed four cases of Swine Flu at a southwest Colorado camp.

The San Juan Basin Health Department says the four were at Camp Kanukuk in Bayfield, 15 miles east of Durango and all four were from out-of-state. Officials didn't say whether they were campers or staff.

The camp reported on July 14 that 74 campers and staff had flu-like symptoms. Officials say no one had to be hospitalized.

Camp managers say anyone with flu symptoms was quarantined, and no one was allowed to leave until they went 24 hours without symptoms.

The camp cabins and dining hall were washed with a cleaner recommended by the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep the disease from spreading.
