Social distancing, limit sexual activity with partners you don’t know very well. Monkeypox is NOT a sexually transmitted disease, but because of the intimate act of sex, it puts you at greater risk of contracting it. If you or someone you know has monkeypox, you must stay home and isolate until all of the blisters or lesions have healed, all of the scabs have fallen off and new skin has grown where the blister was. This can take about a month.
Wash your hands! Don’t touch your face, mouth or eyes.
When you sneeze or cough, use your elbow or the inside of your shirt. Train your kids to do the same.
Do not share towels with anyone. Towels are a wonderful source of virus and bacteria. They’re moist and they carry viruses and bacteria left on someone’s hands or body that used in before.
