Health officials have confirmed another case of swine flu in New Jersey. The patient is a 12-year old Camden County girl. Health officials say she traveled to an affected state and did not return to school while sick. She was not hospitalized and has recovered.

Seven other cases had been confirmed, but on Tuesday health officials said one turned out to be a false positive. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now says a 22-year old Bergen County woman did not have the swine flu strain.

The state Department of Health and Senior Services says all New Jersey cases have been mild and no one has been hospitalized.
