No other cases have been identified in the state, the release said.

The first monkeypox case in the United States was reported in Massachusetts on Wednesday.

The disease, which is similar to human smallpox but milder, was found in a man who had recently travelled to Canada.

Health officials said the case posed no risk to the public.

The second U.S. case was a New York City resident who tested positive for the virus on Friday, health officials said.
