Seattle – King County Public Health posts the latest information here: kingcounty.gov/monkeypox.

So far, most cases of monkeypox in King County have been reported among men who had close intimate contact with other men, sometimes with multiple partners.

But others can become infected, regardless of age, sexual orientation or gender identity.
