Two more swine flu cases in New Jersey were confirmed on Friday afternoon by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services.
A 22-year-old Burlington County woman and a 12-year-old Somerset County girl have mild cases of the flu and are recovering at home.
Seven cases of swine flu have been confirmed in New Jersey as of Friday.
Meanwhile, three area people tested for swine flu do not have the virus, local health officials said Friday.
Two Vineland residents tested negative, while a third Cumberland County resident also tested negative, health officials said. All three had grown sick with flu-like symptoms, with the two middle-aged Vineland residents doing so shortly after traveling to Mexico. One of them is fully recovered, while the other is still recovering, according to Jeanne Garbarino, the head of Vineland's health inspectors.
The county health department had been following two other local residents with flu-like symptoms. One has been tested for swine flu, with results expected back next week, county Health Director Herb Roeschke said. The fifth person will likely not be tested unless hospitalized, Roeschke said.
