Dear Salem Community-
On August 4, 2022, the United States declared Monkeypox a public health emergency. This was done in part to assure that those communities most affected by the Monkeypox outbreak could receive vital resources as quickly as possible. While we know, at this time, the current risk of Monkeypox to the public remains low, we also recognize that anyone can be affected by this outbreak.
Currently, there are no known cases of Monkeypox on our campus, however, we will continue to monitor cases and work with state and local health authorities to receive the most up-to-date information regarding the outbreak. Below you will find information and resources related to the Monkeypox outbreak in the United States.
For the most up-to-date information regarding the Monkeypox virus, please visit the website for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
