Tourists stroll along Lincoln Road in Miami Beach in August 2016, which has been hit hard by locally transmitted cases of the Zika virus. Two Miami Beach police officers recently contracted the virus and were denied workers’ compensation coverage by the city’s insurance. The head of the police union is calling for state legislation so first responders would be covered by workers’ comp if they contracted Zika.
