Monkeypox Facts and Prevention
Monkeypox is a disease that is caused by infection with a virus. The virus is similar to the variola virus which causes smallpox and the cowpox virus.
Monkeypox is a virus that can be spread from person to person through close contact. This can happen by touching the sores (lesions) of a person who is infected, by touching clothing, bed linens, or equipment that have been contaminated by fluid from infected lesions, or through respiratory droplets when people are in prolonged (>3 hours) face-to-face contact. Sexual contact with someone who is symptomatic is also considered to pose a higher risk for transmission.
Here is more information on the Emergency Management’s monkeypox webpage and the Open Meeting video.
