Officials say that one case does not mean ongoing active transmission is taking place.

According to CDC guidance, providers should consider testing all pregnant women with a history of travel to a Zika affected area for the virus. It is also recommended that all pregnant women who reside in or travel frequently to the area where active transmission is likely occurring be tested for Zika in the first and second trimester.

Pregnant women in the identified area can contact their medical provider or their local county health department to be tested and receive a Zika prevention kit, officials say. 

The total number of pregnant women who have been or are being monitored is 75.

The number for the Zika Virus Information Hotline is 1-855-622-6735.
