Monkey pox 

Monkeypox Outbreak

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is currently monitoring case counts of monkeypox and encourages clinicians to refer potential patients for testing by contacting the Department of Public Health. If you have symptoms of monkeypox, including unknown rashes/lesions contact your healthcare provider for an assessment. Skin to skin contact, including sexual contact are the highest risk factors of human transmission of monkeypox. Currently, the overall risks for Americans is low.
