HOUSTON (Reuters) - Texas state health authorities on Saturday ordered a high school near San Antonio closed indefinitely after a third student showed symptoms of swine flu, which has killed dozens of people in Mexico.
“A third student is listed as a probable case with confirmatory lab test results pending,” the Texas Department of State Health Services said in a statement.
Swine flu was confirmed earlier this month in two students at Byron Steele High School in Guadalupe County near San Antonio.
“The original two have recovered, and the third is recovering,” the state health board said.
