Mpox is a rare but potentially serious disease that is caused by the mpox virus.  Mpox virus is from the same family of viruses as the smallpox virus that can cause a rash that may look like pimples or blisters, sometimes with a flu-like illness. The threat of mpox to the general Williamson County population remains low. 

WCCHD has adopted "mpox" as the term used to refer to monkeypox disease in support of the November 28, 2022, recommendation by the World Health Organization and U.S. Health and Human Services.
