LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Lufkin ISD student test has been returned as probable for H1N1 flu to the health district office, according to a county spokeswoman.

The Angelina County Health District received the probable result Tuesday morning, Sharon Shaw said.

The male was tested in early May and was properly treated for the flu and stayed out of school for seven days and is back to regular activities, Shaw said.

Shaw said that of the probable cases sent to the state, 99 percent have come back positive.
