Mpox Information

The Student Health & Counseling Center is closely tracking the global outbreak of mpox, which continues to spread in the United States and New York State. We work closely with the Clinton County Health Department to ensure that we have the latest information and guidance, and we are ready to provide medical support if needed.

Prevention is key. Mpox is not nearly as contagious as COVID-19, but care should be taken to avoid or limit direct physical contact with individuals who have contracted mpox or who may have been exposed. Students who develop symptoms, or have reason to believe they have been exposed, should contact the Center: 518-564-2187.

Please refer to the following resources for the most up-to-date information about mpox:
