The Florida Department of Health announced on Tuesday that there have been six cases of Zika virus in Florida from people traveling outside of the country.
DOH officials said that none of the diagnosed cases involved pregnant women. Zika virus is known to cause children to be born with microcephaly, a condition where the head is abnormally small.
The Florida cases of Zika were found in Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Lee, and Santa Rosa Counties.
Officials do not believe that Florida is at risk for Zika but will closely monitor.
Zika is primarily transmitted through infected mosquitos. It is currently found primarily in South American and the Caribbean.
The announcement by the Florida health officials comes after officials in Texas announced that a person contracted the virus through sexual contact with an individual who has got the virus while in Venezuela.
