Alexandria Health Department to host meeting about Monkeypox concerns

With Alexandria hitting 50 cases of Monkeypox, the Alexandria Health Department (AHD) is planning to host a virtual meeting next week to address concerns about the virus.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m.

Of the 353 cases of Monkeypox in Virginia, Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson said Alexandria has 50 of them.

“Public health officials will address important community concerns including how the virus is spread, common symptoms, vaccine eligibility and what the City is doing to keep residents and businesses well-informed,” a release from AHD said. “Monkeypox continues to be a rapidly evolving situation as cases in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland increase.”

Questions can be submitted online in advance of the meeting via the city website.
