Monkeypox (hMPXV) doesn’t spread easily. To get it, you need skin-to-skin contact with someone who is sick with hMPXV. You can also get hMPXV from handling clothing, bedding, or other materials that have touched a sick person’s rash. Less often, infection can happen during close, face-to-face contact for a long time (more than 3 hours).
