Florida health officials have confirmed the first sexually transmitted Zika case of 2017 in the state.

The newly identified infection is classified as travel-associated as the infected individual's partner recently traveled to Cuba and experienced symptoms indicative of Zika infection, which can include fever, rash and conjunctivitis.

Officials said the couple tested positive for Zika.

The health department has been in touch with mosquito control, and says mosquito reduction activities are taking place.
