Knowledge is Power

Symptoms of monkeypox usually start within three weeks of exposure to the virus. Symptoms may present like flu-like symptoms, usually followed by development of a rash 1-4 days later. Individuals infected with monkeypox are considered contagious from the time symptoms are first exhibited to the time the rash is fully healed and a new layer of skin has formed.

According to the CDC, Monkeypox can spread to anyone through close, personal, often skin-to-skin contact, including:
Direct contact with monkeypox rash, scabs, or body fluids from a person with monkeypox
Contact with objects, fabrics (clothing, bedding or towels) and surfaces that have been used by someone with monkeypox
Contact with respiratory secretions
This direct contact can happen during intimate contact, including:

Oral, anal and vaginal sex or touching the genitals (penis, testicles, labia and vagina) or anus of a person with monkeypox
Hugging, massaging and kissing
Prolonged face-to-face contact
Touching fabrics and objects during sex that were used by a person with monkeypox and have not been disinfected such as bedding, towels and sex toys
