Connecticut has two probable swine flu cases that have been sent to the CDC for testing, Gov. M. Jodi Rell said Tuesday.  

One is from an adult in Stratford and the other is an adult in Southbury, both of whom recently traveled to Mexico.
 
Concerns about swine flu also closed East Haddam schools after two students who recently returned from a family trip became ill.
 
One student attends the elementary school and the other goes to the middle school, according to people at the school.  
 
Tests on those children are on the way to the state lab.
