Officials are reporting the first possible case of monkeypox in Douglas County. The Douglas County Health Department reported yesterday that an orthopox case involves a man in his 30s who has a history of international travel. County health officials say monkeypox is transmitted through contact with infectious sores on the body, body fluids, respiratory droplets through prolonged face-to-face contact and contaminated items including bedding or clothing.
