Understanding How Monkeypox Spreads
Monkeypox is spread via direct or close contact — particularly with the rash, lesions, and scabs caused by the virus. As such, the spread of monkeypox generally happens through skin-to-skin contact, such as touching, hugging, or kissing someone.
The virus can also spread through prolonged face-to-face contact, body fluids, and sexual activities. Coming into contact with clothes and other objects that were previously used by someone with monkeypox can also spread the virus.
Monkeypox has an incubation period of around one to three weeks. This means symptoms may only show up a couple of weeks after you were exposed to monkeypox. If you start to develop rashes, lesions, sores, or scabs — especially after a few days of flu-like symptoms — you may have monkeypox.
If you believe your symptoms may be due to exposure to monkeypox, please contact Prestige Urgent Care to schedule your appointment for testing.
Quick and Easy Monkeypox Screenings
Prestige Urgent Care uses a monkeypox virus polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. A member of our medical staff will use a swab to collect a sample from your rashes or lesions. The swab will then be sent to the lab and tested for the monkeypox virus.
Monkeypox testing is painless and takes just a few minutes. However, take note that the PCR test can only be done on individuals who develop spots, rashes, or lesions. Results of the screening will be available within two to four days.
Individuals who visit for monkeypox testing are advised to take the necessary safety precautions prior to the release of their results to avoid potentially spreading the disease.
