The number of probable cases of swine flu in New Hampshire has risen to four, and a high school will be closed Monday so health officials can investigate further.

Gov. John Lynch says one of the new probable cases is an 18-year-old student at Kearsarge Regional High School in Sutton who went home immediately after becoming ill Thursday and has almost completely recovered. The other involves a 15-year-old, but officials aren’t saying anything else.

Lynch said he doesn’t expect the school to remain closed beyond Monday. A public meeting will be held Monday night for parents and staff.

In addition to two other probable cases officials discussed earlier, a Concord Hospital worker who was not contagious at work has been confirmed as having the virus.
