Monkey Pox and Travel


On Aug. 9, Northwestern University sent a communication about the University’s approach to preparation and prevention of the monkeypox virus. As that message stated, there is no need to delay or defer international travel due to the spread of monkeypox, but we have worked with Northwestern Medicine and Student Health Service to develop some frequently asked questions about monkeypox and travel. Travelers who have additional questions or concerns about accessing medical care abroad can contact us at
