Monkeypox Information & Resources

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDPHE, and local public health officials are currently monitoring cases of monkeypox in Colorado.

Monkeypox is a virus in the orthopox family of viruses. Monkeypox is rare, but it can be serious for people who get sick. Monkeypox can spread from person to person when someone who has monkeypox has close contact with someone else.

Recent cases in the United States have been infected through person-to-person contact. Brief interactions without physical contact are unlikely to result in getting the virus.

Stay up-to-date on testing, vaccination, and find frequently asked questions and general information at CDPHE's website.
