If you believe you may have mpox and want to be tested, first isolate yourself at home away from others, and call your medical provider for testing options.

Call before visiting your provider and let them know you have signs and symptoms of mpox. If you do not have a medical provider, you may call 706-340-0996 for additional guidance.

Mpox testing can only be performed if a person has a rash, bumps, or sores; people who are asymptomatic cannot be tested at this time.

For more information on mpox visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at www.cdc.gov/monkeypox
