Swine Flu Reported in Jackson County

The Jackson County Health Department says one case of swine flu has been reported in the county.

Lin Montgomery, with the health department, told the "Seymour Tribune" a 3-year-old child is suspected of contracting the flu during a visit earlier this month at the Bartholomew County Fair in Columbus.

Montgomery says that conclusion is based on the four-day incubation period of the influenza A H3N2 variant virus, also known as swine flu, and when the child visited the fairgrounds.

She said the child, however, is part of a farm family that raises hogs and showed pigs at the Bartholomew County Fair.
