      Updated December 8, 2022

      • Who can use this toolkit? People living or working in correctional or detention facilities; administrators and healthcare providers in correctional or detention facilities; families of people who are incarcerated.

      • What is this toolkit about? This toolkit provides information about preventing mpox spread in correctional and detention settings.

      • How can I use this toolkit? Correctional and detention facilities and healthcare providers operating within them can use this toolkit to support identification of mpox cases and support prevention among residents and staff. People who are incarcerated can use the toolkit to learn about signs and symptoms of mpox and ways they can protect themselves.

      Based on currently available data, people living or working in correctional or detention facilities are not believed to be at higher risk of being infected with mpox virus than people in the general population. However, some types of contact that are common in these settings – including sleeping in the same room as other people, sharing clothing or linens, and sharing personal items or eating utensils – have been linked to mpox virus transmission. In addition, access to hygiene and sanitation supplies might be limited, and stigma associated with mpox might prevent people who are incarcerated from reporting symptoms or high-risk contact. The resources below address these unique concerns.
