PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- The Charlotte County Department of Health now says state lab tests from a suspected case of chikungunya have come back negative.

The department says chikungunya is a relatively short illness, so they are categorizing this case as a "probable negative."

Chikungunya is contracted from mosquitoes, and causes fever and joint pain.
