Recently, cases of the Monkeypox Virus (MPV) have been found in the United States. According to the CDC, MPV is a disease that can cause flu-like symptoms and a rash or lesions. The virus is spreading mostly through close, intimate contact with an infected person, such as direct contact with lesions, infected body fluids, or from exposure to respiratory secretions during prolonged face-to-face contact. A person is contagious from the start of symptom onset and until all scabs have separated and a fresh layer of skin has formed over the lesions. If you have any flu-like symptoms, develop a rash, and/or have been in contact with someone who has MPV, please self-isolate and contact your healthcare provider and the Student Health Center. For more information please visit the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/monkeypox/symptoms.html or Ohio Department of Health website https://odh.ohio.gov/media-center/feature-stories/monkeypox-faq-2022.
