4 new swine flu cases reported in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Health and school officials in southern Nevada say they have confirmed four new cases of swine flu stemming from an elementary school in Las Vegas.

The Clark County School District said Wednesday that four students from Marion Earl Elementary School had a mild form of the illness.

The Southern Nevada Health District says the positive tests came from six samples analyzed by the Southern Nevada Public Health Laboratory.

Nevada State Health Division spokeswoman Martha Framsted says the new cases brought the Clark County confirmed total to 38 and the statewide total to 146 cases.

Southern Nevada health officials say they are not recommending that the school be closed, but they do recommend parents keep children home if they are ill.
