Monkeypox Testing

If you believe you may have monkeypox and want to be tested, first isolate yourself at home away from others, and call your medical provider for testing options.

Call before visiting your provider and let them know you have signs and symptoms of monkeypox. If you do not have a medical provider, you may call 706-340-0996 for additional guidance.

Monkeypox testing can only be performed if a person has a rash, bumps, or sores; people who are asymptomatic cannot be tested at this time.
