CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va, (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Biden Administration declared the Monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency on Thursday.

Monkeypox can be spread from person to person through physical contact by direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids; touching items (such as clothing or linens) that previously touched the infectious rash or body fluid; and pregnant people can spread the virus to their fetus through the placenta.

Symptoms of the virus include fever, headache, muscle aches and backache, chills, and exhaustion.

As of Aug. 4, there are a total of 122 confirmed cases in Virginia.

According to the data, a majority of the cases are in the Northern portion of Virginia.

The Blue Ridge Health District states that it has a limited supply of Monkeypox vaccines.

It also has a form to gather contact information for people who are at high risk of exposure and are interested in getting vaccinated.
