TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Some Florida schools will be closed all
week while health officials monitor three confirmed cases and 15
probable cases of swine flu statewide.

Five probable cases are in Hillsborough County. Officials say
two of the Hillsborough cases are students at Wilson Middle School
and Freedom High School.

Those schools are closed, and so will Liberty Middle School because it shares a cafeteria with the high school.

Hillsborough County health department director Doug Holt says
officials are "acting out of an abudance of caution."

Schools in Lee and Broward counties also remain closed this week
after state officials confirmed Friday that two students had swine
flu.

On Sunday, a 14-year-old tourist in Orange County became the
state's third confirmed swine flu case.
