U.S. Monkeypox Outbreak 2022: Situation Summary Overview

​Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are tracking multiple cases of monkeypox that have been reported in several countries that don’t normally report monkeypox, including the United States.

It’s not clear how the people were exposed to monkeypox, but early data suggest that gay and bisexual men make up a high number of cases. However, anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has monkeypox is at risk.

To learn more about recommendations for those who may have had contact with monkeypox virus, visit Exposure Risk Assessment and Public Health Recommendations.

CDC is urging healthcare providers in the U.S. to be alert for patients who have rash illnesses consistent with monkeypox, regardless of whether they have travel or specific risk factors for monkeypox and regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

CDC is working with state and local health officials to identify people who may have been in contact with individuals who have tested positive for monkeypox, so they can monitor their health.
