Two private Catholic schools in Salt Lake County are closing their doors for at least two days because of swine flu.
Judge Memorial Catholic High School and Our Lady of the Lourdes School said Thursday afternoon that they would be closed Friday and Monday. They also canceled all sporting and other extracurricular events.
According to a statement, one of the presenters at the April 27 Judge Memorial Nancy Miller Memorial Day has been identified as one of the highly probable cases of H1N1 flu, or the swine flu virus.
The schools will have administrators on site Friday for anyone who does not know about the closures. All other faculty and staff members will remain home.
The schools are expected to reopen Tuesday. Parents can monitor the closure situation through judgememorial.com. They should also check the health.utah.gov/swineflu link for current information about swine flu.
