Monkeypox Update

The University’s Public Health Promotion Center is closely monitoring our local, regional and national public health situation regarding the global outbreak of monkeypox. We are working in conjunction with University Health Services to train our staff and to develop plans to identify, test, isolate, manage contacts, and monitor cases should they occur in our campus community. Furthermore, we want to encourage the entire UMass community to familiarize themselves with the basic facts about monkeypox and to take steps to prevent its spread.
