What to Know About Monkeypox

The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) and the World Health Organization offer some helpful information on monkeypox identification, prevention, and treatment. 

If you have questions about suspected symptoms, physically distance yourself from others, wear a mask, and call your primary care provider or contact Tufts Medical Center's dedicated student line at 617-636-6006 to request more information. The phone line's hours of operation are Monday–Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Note that direct medical care is not available on campus.

All Boston residents living in the City of Boston who are diagnosed with monkeypox are contacted and followed by the Boston Public Health Commission’s Infectious Diseases Bureau throughout their disease course to provide information and support.
