UAF monkeypox update
Aug. 24, 2022
What is monkeypox?
Monkeypox is part of a family of variola viruses that causes smallpox. Thus, symptoms are similar to smallpox, however much less severe and rarely fatal. Monkeypox is not related to chicken pox but it is a virus that is spread, most commonly through, close intimate contact with someone who has the known virus. It is less transmissible than chicken pox, measles, or even COVID-19.
How are we responding?
UAF continues to monitor the State of Alaska, Department of Health, Division of Public Health’s (DPH) surveillance of monkeypox in Alaska along with any guidance they provide regarding public health and safety.
