In brief: Hantavirus

The virus is know as 4 corner virus, because it is primarily seen in the Southwestern United states.
I am unaware of significant issues in any metropolitan area. I think your concern is very low. However, it may be helpful to call your local health department. You can also check the CDC website for information.
