The interim infection prevention and control Mpox guidelines are intended for health-care workers in health care settings, programs and services, where patient care is delivered. This includes acute care/inpatient settings, primary and community clinics, pre-hospital, home health and long-term care. Other non-health care settings are beyond the scope of this guidance.
These recommendations are based on current knowledge and will be updated when more information becomes available and as needed. A summary of changes from the previous version of the document is included at the beginning of the guidance.
