The third probable case of swine flu in Kentucky has been found in a Montgomery County infant. County health officials say the infant has recovered from the illness but samples have been sent to the CDC to determine if the child had the swine flu.

Health officials have questioned the child's family and say that they haven't traveled out of the state or the country.

The child attends daycare at the Camargo Church of God daycare center. The center has voluntarily shut down for the upcoming week while staff members work to ensure the facility is properly sanitized.

So far there are two other probable cases of swine flu in Kentucky. One involves a Fayette County man, the other is an infant in the Barren River Health District. One case of swine flu has been confirmed in a Warren County woman who is hospitalized in Georgia.

Montgomery County health officials hope to have word back from the CDC by Monday or Tuesday as to whether or not the infant had the swine flu.
