Florida health officials are reporting the state's first case this year of the Zika virus transmitted by a local mosquito.
Health officials said the case emerged after a couple had traveled to Cuba and one partner became ill with symptoms consistent with Zika shortly after returning to Florida.
The partner that acquired Zika in Cuba was not tested for Zika while they had symptoms.

The Manatee County Department of Health notified mosquito control about the suspected case.
There is no indication that there is an ongoing transmission of the Zika virus in the area. But a test performed this week showed evidence of a past Zika infection, linking the traveler's case to their recently symptomatic partner, who tested positive.
Though Zika sparked a public health crisis in Florida in 2016, with almost 1,500 infections statewide, including 300 local cases spread by mosquitoes, the virus has waned this year. A total of 187 known Zika virus infections have been recorded in Florida in 2017, 107 of which were in pregnant women. Condoms should be used to lower the chances of sexual transmission of the virus, and pregnant couples are advised to use them during the entire pregnancy.
