The health unit issued a media release confirming the Monkeypox case Saturday morning.

“This individual likely acquired the infection in the Toronto area. This individual is currently isolating, and close contact(s) have been notified,” the health unit stated in a media release issued Saturday.
The health unit says the risk of contracting monkeypox remains very low in the Nipissing district, “as there is no evidence of the virus circulating locally.”

“Based on the low risk, only close contacts will be offered post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).”

Any person who develops symptoms or who has had contact with a suspected or known case of Monkeypox is asked to contact their health care provider immediately.

Anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, age, or gender can spread Monkeypox through contact with body fluids, Monkeypox sores, or by sharing contaminated items.
The Monkeypox virus is spread most often by direct (skin) contact with an infectious rash, scab or body fluid, or by direct contact with contaminated items such as clothing or linens.

It can also be spread through the respiratory tract with prolonged close contact with an infected individual, or if mucous membranes (eyes, nose or mouth) come into contact with infectious secretions.
People can protect themselves by monitoring for symptoms for 21 days after exposure, washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer after contact with an infected animal or human, using personal protective equipment when required, avoid contact with individuals and animals that could have the virus, avoid contact with materials that have been in contact with a sick animal or person.
Symptoms of Monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion
Within 1 to 3 days (sometimes longer) after the appearance of fever, the patient develops a rash, often beginning on the face and then spreading to other parts of the body.
The illness typically lasts for two to four weeks. Individuals are no longer infectious when the crusts of the lesions have fallen off revealing new skin below.
