A 13-year-old Levy County girl has died in an H1N1 Swine Flu related case, according to the Levy County Health Department. 

“Our deepest sympathies are extended to family and friends,”  Barbara Locke, County health adminstrator, said..

“We continue to receive and investigate reports of flu transmission in the County and urge citizens to exercise precautions against infection.”

The girl died Sept. 13, but it was not confirmed as being H1N1 flu until Wednesday afternoon, Locke said. "It takes a while for tests to come back," she said.

Because the incubation period for swine flu is one to 4 days, there really is no reason for concern, Locke said. "We're all past that," she said.

But she also advised parents to follow the Health Department's precautions that have been issued to keep children at home and away from others at the first sign of illness.
