The case involves an unnamed individual who traveled to Colombia between December and January.
The individual has recovered fully and is not infectious, the AJC reports.
Earlier today, the CDC confirmed the mosquito-borne Zika virus can be sexually transmitted.
In the statement to CNN, the CDC confirmed Zika was present in the blood of a "nontraveler" in the Dallas, Texas area.
The Zika virus causes no symptoms in 80% of those infected. But in 20% of the cases the symptoms include whole body rash, fever, headache, fatigue, chills, sweating and joint pain.
The virus causes birth defects in babies who are born with abnormally small heads.
