Monkeypox now in Oakland County

Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter last week launched the Oakland County Monkeypox Task Force to respond to the outbreak and to educate the public about the illness.
To date, the county has at least five confirmed or probable monkeypox cases, the highest of any county in Michigan.
Oakland County Health Officer Calandra Green will lead the task force, which will also create a plan for the distribution of vaccines once they become more readily available.
Task force members also include Dr. Paul Benson, medical director at Be Well Medical Center in Berkley, Oakland County Medical Director Dr. Russell Faust, Affirmations Executive Director Dave Garcia, a representative from Corktown Health in Hazel Park, and a representative from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
