HARTFORD, Conn. – Four Connecticut residents, including one pregnant woman, have been infected by the Zika virus after traveling to Zika-affected countries.

Connecticut’s Department of Public Health is teaming up with the Connecticut Airport Authority in creating materials to warn travelers headed to Zika-affected territories like Puerto Rico, where 1 in 5 Puerto Ricans are likely to contract the virus at some point.

There are daily direct flights from Bradley International Airport to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
