CDC Monkeypox Partner Update: May 27, 2022
Today, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent an email to National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) partners to provide them with CDC-developed resources regarding monkeypox cases in the United States. Please see information from the email below.
Good afternoon, partners,
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to closely track clusters of monkeypox that have been recently reported in several countries that do not normally have monkeypox activity. Efforts to investigate the source of transmission and identify contacts are ongoing. We suspect close personal contact is driving transmission. CDC is working with state and local health officials to identify people who may have been in contact with the people who have tested positive, so those contacts can monitor their health and seek care if they develop symptoms.
Please see below for a list of recently released or updated resources related to monkeypox.
CDC is in the early phase of this investigation, and, as we gather more information, we will be able to develop a more complete picture.
