Two West New York preschoolers have swine flu, state health officials confirmed today, as the number of victims statewide increased by 31 since last week.
The youngsters have been out of Pretty Faces Day Care Center since May 18, according to city officials, who say neither has a sibling in a district school.
The center — at 62nd Street off Polk Street — will remain closed until Monday while it’s sanitized, they said.
Five other youngsters in Union Ciy have been reported to have swine flu, as well. Overall, 56 cases have been reported in New Jersey in 11 of its 21 counties, health officials report. A concentration has been in Hudson, Bergen and a few other northern counties. But cases have been reported in Mercer and Monmouth, as well.
