Md. campus officials prepare for Monkeypox prevention as fall semester approaches

August 10, 2022

University officials across Maryland are preparing for both the return of students in the coming weeks and the Monkeypox public health emergency. “The main thing is educating the student body about what they can do to prevent the disease and also recognize it early,” said University of Maryland, Baltimore Public Health Officer Dr. Marianne Cloeren. Dr. Cloeren said contact tracing and vaccination efforts, once supply ramps up, will be critical in the response to Monkeypox. The University of Maryland, College Park sent a letter to its campus community Tuesday laying out prevention, symptoms, and information about the virus. So far, there have not been any cases within its community, the letter said.
