SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Health officials say this year's flu season is winding down after hitting a peak three weeks ago.
Utah Department of Health officials said since September there has been just over 24-hundred laboratory-identified flu cases.
The majority of those cases were from residents living along the Wasatch Front. Salt Lake County led the way with one-thousand and 57 cases, followed by Davis County with five-hundred and 19 cases and Weber County with four-hundred and 45 cases.
Health officials said this year's flu season was milder than last. Last year, the season hit earlier and harder with about 6-thousand confirmed cases and several deaths.
