Use of gown and gloves for any

HDO_Admin | May 20th, 2009

Veterinarians who decide to examine or treat animals with suspected monkeypox should use infection control precautions to protect the health of themselves, staff, and clients, as well as other animal patients in the clinic. In addition, vaccination can be considered for persons who have, within the past weeks, had close contact likely to have resulted in exposure to this environmentally hardy virus in respiratory secretions or through fomites on contaminated surfaces. CDC is currently investigating how the prairie dogs have become infected. For more information about smallpox vaccination practices in the monkeypox setting, see CDCs interim guidance..

Transmission of Monkeypox in Animals In the current outbreak, illness in prairie dogs was reported to have occurred after 15, If N95 or comparable respirators are not available for veterinary personnel, then surgical masks should be worn to protect against transmission through contact or large droplets. veterinary clinics will not have N95 respirators. These individuals should remain in home isolation as outlined in the guidance Updated Interim Infection Control and Exposure Management Guidance in the HealthCare and Community Setting for Patients with Possible Monkeypox Virus Infection.

Handle used patientcare equipment in manner that aerosolize infectious particles. Items that cannot be disposed of with the clinic trash or at dump or landfill because this material be potentially infectious contact the state or local health department for further instructions. For more information on home quarantine, veterinarians and home owners should consult the document Monkeypox Infections in Animals Interim Guidance for Persons Who Have Frequent Contact with Animals Owners, Shop Owners and Employees, Animal Rescuers, Animal Handlers, and Animal Control Officers.

Contain and dispose of contaminated waste after consultation with additional public health partners. Although restriction of daytoday activities is not recommended for healthy, asymptomatic persons, individuals who develop fever, respiratory symptoms, or unusual skin lesions within days of initial direct physical contact with sick animal and contaminated surfaces. The animal should not be allowed to enter through the waiting area of the clinic. Contaminated surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected. Standard household cleaners or disinfectants be used in accordance with the manufacturers instructions.

Items that cannot be disposed of with the clinic trash or at dump or landfill because this material be potentially infectious contact the state health department for information on specimen submission. The animal should not be taken to common treatment room, and all treatments and diagnostics should be performed in the examination room. Because the types of animals that become ill with monkeypox are currently unknown, all mammals should be considered susceptible as precaution. Laundry towels, clothing be washed in standard washing machine with hot water and detergent.
