The Arkansas Department of Health has just confirmed a resident has tested positive for Zika Virus. Another case was confirmed in Virginia, according to the Associated Press. The US Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) told the department late yesterday afternoon that the infected Arkansas resident recently traveled out of the country and had “a mild case of Zika.”

In Virginia, the state health department said an individual who was recently overseas also contracted the virus, AP reported. Others are not at risk from this unidentified person, officials said, due to the lack of mosquitoes in the winter months. Still, the state cautioned travelers who may want to escape cold temperatures for warmer climates to check travel alerts before leaving the country. Meanwhile, the CDC said it was adding the US Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic to its Zika virus travel alerts, according to Reuters. CONTINUE
