Isolation and Infection Control for Home: Mpox


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

People with mpox who do not require hospitalization should be isolated at home.
