What should I do if I test positive for monkeypox?

Employees and students with off-campus apartments should stay home. Do not go to work or class. Leave your home only for medical care. 

Talk with your medical provider about whether you qualify for treatment with the antiviral medication TPOXX and whether your close contacts can get a monkeypox vaccine quickly.

The Public Health Team will provide additional information about isolation to all students who test positive. Students in residential housing are encouraged to isolate at their permanent residence if possible, or they can be moved into in a separate isolation space on campus provided by WPI.
