A second person living in Connecticut has been diagnosed with Zika virus.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health on Friday says a man in his 40s tested positive for the virus by health officials in New York City.
The man is in his 40s and developed a rash a day after he returned from a trip to the Caribbean. No other symptoms were reported.
The man's name has not been released.
Gov. Dannel Malloy urged people who have traveled to a region affected by Zika and pregnant women to contact a doctor if they are concerned about their symptoms.
More than 300 cases of Zika have been reported in the United States. Eight of them were sexually transmitted.
