monkeypox examples

MPV  is not COVID-19. This strain appears to be spreading through close skin-to-skin contact with another person. 

➡️ If you develop a rash that is concerning for MPV, please contact your healthcare provider. 

➡️ If you have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with MPV, please contact Jefferson County Public Health at 360-385-9400

Symptoms of MPV typically include swollen lymph nodes and a rash that can appear anywhere on the body. Sometimes flu-like symptoms are reported as well. MPV is contagious to humans and animals from the start of symptoms until the rash has fully healed.
