Park City, Utah (AP) - Officials have closed schools in Park City because they suspect three students could have Swine Flu.

The cases have not been confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention but the Park City School District says on its Web site that it is closing its eight schools and the district office as a precaution.

The closures are effective at least through Monday and all school-related activities are canceled.

The Utah Department of Health said Wednesday the state has its first “probable” case of Swine Flu and has sent a sample to the CDC for testing. Results are expected by late Friday.

It is not clear whether the probable case sent for testing is a fourth case or one of the three possible cases in Park City.

Park City is about 25 miles out of Salt Lake City.
