  • Pennsylvania Department of Health confirms monkeypox case at University Park


    AUGUST 17, 2022

    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. –The Pennsylvania Department of Health has confirmed that a student at Penn State's University Park campus tested positive for monkeypox on Aug. 13. The patient resides off campus, has been seen by health care providers, and is currently isolating and recovering.

    University Health Services (UHS), a unit of Penn State Student Affairs, contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and, together, they continue to monitor the case. Close contacts of the student have been identified and notified through contract tracing conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

    ... Due to the current U.S. outbreak of the virus, which began in spring 2022, the University urges students to take precautions against monkeypox and to self-isolate and contact UHS or their health care provider if they develop symptoms.
