The following resource was developed and shared during the multi-country Mpox outbreak of clade II in 2022-2023. The current outbreak of Mpox clade I requires different considerations for patient management as clade I is considered a select agent. If you have questions related to the isolation of patients and waste management, please reach out to us here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
People with mpox who do not require hospitalization should be isolated at home.
