If you have signs or symptoms of monkeypox, you should see a healthcare provider for testing, even if you don’t think you had contact with someone who has monkeypox.  Healthcare providers can order monkeypox virus testing from commercial laboratories, such as LabcorpMayo Clinic LaboratoriesQuest DiagnosticsAegis Sciences, and Sonic Healthcare USA, as they normally would order any other tests.

Individuals seeking testing must consult with their healthcare provider first; they cannot separately go to a commercial laboratory, submit a specimen, and request testing.   Only your provider — not the Health Department — can give you the test result.  While you are waiting for your test result, which can take a few days, isolate from others.
