    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A UPMC Children's Hospital employee has been diagnosed with monkeypox, though the health system said it believes there's a "very low" risk of exposure.

    The employee works at an outpatient clinic at Children's, UPMC confirmed in a statement.

    UPMC said it already had precautions in place to prevent the spread of monkeypox, and while the health system believes there's a low risk of exposure, it's still contacting patients and staff who may have had contact with the employee.
