“While the risk for most Hawaii residents remains low, we urge individuals with symptoms consistent with monkeypox to contact their healthcare provider,” said Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Nathan Tan.

The DOH said the risk to most Hawaii residents remains low.

Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated symptoms of monkeypox begin with fever, headache, muscle aches and exhaustion.

The CDC explained within one to three days — sometimes longer — after the appearance of fever, the patient develops a rash. The rash often starts on the face and then spreads to other parts of the body. The illness typically lasts for two to four weeks.
