What is Monkeypox?

 

  • Monkeypox is a virus that spreads through prolonged skin to skin contact, sex, kissing, breathing at very close range, or sharing bedding and clothing.
     
  • Monkeypox is rare and currently a low threat to the general public.
     
  • It can be serious, though most cases resolve on their own. Seeing a doctor right away is important.
     
  • Having sex or close physical contact with multiple people can put you at higher risk for monkeypox if it is spreading in the community.
     
  • It appears as a distinctive rash or sores on the skin anywhere on the body, especially in the genital area. It often begins as flu-like symptoms.
     
  • We are working with state and federal agencies to monitor for monkeypox, and to help control the spread of the virus.
