Monkeypox in Piedmont

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Piedmont Health District are responding to an outbreak of monkeypox that has spread across several countries that don’t normally report monkeypox, including the United States. For information on monkeypox in Virginia, please visit the VDH monkeypox website. If you are a healthcare provider, please visit the monkeypox website for healthcare providers

If you have symptoms, such as a new rash, separate yourself from other people and pets, cover your lesions, and contact your healthcare provider. 

The Piedmont Health District is working to ensure that residents who have been exposed or are at high risk of being exposed to monkeypox receive a vaccination. If you are interested in receiving a monkeypox vaccination, please complete our interest form (found here) or call your LHD nurse.
