Monkeypox Information Opens in new windowCenters for Disease Control and Prevention, CDPHE, and local public health officials are currently monitoring cases of monkeypox in Colorado.

Monkeypox typically spreads from person to person through close physical contact. Close contact can mean physical contact with the sores or bumps of someone who has monkeypox or sexual contact with someone who has monkeypox. Brief interactions without physical contact are unlikely to result in getting the virus.  Although risk to the general public is low, more cases have been detected in the metro area in recent weeks.

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