Who is a close contact?
A close contact is anyone who, since the start of your monkeypox symptoms, you have:
- had sex with, including oral, anal, or vaginal sex.
- came into direct contact with the rash on your body.
- hugged, cuddled, kissed, or had other prolonged skin-to-skin contact with.
- shared cups, utensils, towels, clothing, bedding, blankets, or other objects and materials with.
