Colorado State University is dealing with a spike in swine flu cases that has school officials urging students with symptoms to stay home.
CSU's health center verified 45 swine flu cases on Wednesday alone. More than 500 people with flu symptoms visited the health center that day, and officials say there could be more than 200 cases of swine flu on campus.
The university is telling students with flu symptoms not to attend class or go to the health center except in case of emergency. It wants to limit spreading the illness.
Swine flu reports at the University of Colorado in Boulder have tapered off at 100. CU has reported about 370 cases of flu-like symptoms since Aug. 1.
The University of Northern Colorado in Greeley says it has had a few confirmed swine flu cases.
