MTC stomach flu outbreak leaves some 250 sick

A suspected stomach flu that hit LDS missionaries in the Missionary Training Center has been nearly contained, Utah County health officials said Thursday.

Lance Madigan, spokesman for the Utah County Health Department, said samples are being processed and the department should know Friday exactly what is ailing the sick missionaries, who are preparing to serve around the world for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
