Monkeypox, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a rare disease caused by infection with monkeypox virus that can affect anyone. The virus can cause flu-like symptoms, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash that often begins on the face and spreads to other parts of the body.
Monkeypox does not spread easily to people without close contact. At this time, cases of monkeypox are relatively rare in the United States. People who think they may have been exposed to monkeypox or who have symptoms of monkeypox should consult with a healthcare provider.
The New Jersey Department of Health is working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health departments to quickly identify monkeypox cases and close contacts, provide treatment and vaccine, and further prevent the spread of disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also is working with state and local health officials to monitor probable and confirmed cases within the country.
