Howard Brown Health Closely Monitoring for Monkeypox
(May 20, 2022 – Chicago, IL) – Howard Brown Health is closely monitoring for monkeypox in our Chicago communities. Recent evidence from outside the U.S. may suggest that there is limited community spread in gay and bisexual men. Monkeypox is often associated with recent travel, but that is not the case with what we are seeing in Europe. However, monkeypox is not easily transmittable, and community spread is currently limited. Howard Brown primary care providers are taking precautions and will be screening patients for monkeypox who present possible symptoms.
