On Monday, a strain of the same strain of HIV that causes gay men to be less likely to contract the disease has been detected in the blood of a Colorado couple who were celebrating their wedding on Sunday.
The strain, called coronavirus strain 7-6, was found in the couple’s blood, a state health official said.
That strain of coronaviruses has been found in more than 40 other people in Colorado and New Mexico.
On Monday morning, the couple was hospitalized after they were bitten by a mosquito.
The couple, who were attending a wedding reception at a restaurant, were tested for the strain.
The infection was not reported in other people who also had been bitten by mosquitoes.
The Colorado health department said the couple did not show symptoms of coronovirus, and that they had taken precautions to limit exposure to mosquitoes.
Colorado is one of a handful of states where gay marriage has been legalized.
A federal judge ruled that gay marriage is legal nationwide and that the ban on gay marriage in Colorado was unconstitutional in 2015.
A similar ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court in June has been stayed pending appeal. Related:
