The medical officer of health for the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority says his office is monitoring two possible cases of swine flu on northern Saskatchewan reserves.


Dr. Mandiangu Nsungu says both individuals were recently in places where the swine flu is known to be.


But he says they have relatively mild flu symptoms.


Nsungu says test results will be back later today or tomorrow.


The health authority is responsible for 33 reserve communities within the Prince Albert Grand Council and Meadow Lake Tribal Council.
