The district said it is in contact with local health officials, who said the "risk of spread in schools is currently low."

Areas of the high school are being sanitized to help stop the chances of spread.

Tarrant County Public Health is investigating this case.

Monkeypox is generally transmitted by direct contact with an infected person’s rash, scab, or bodily fluid.

Though it can also be transmitted via respiratory fluids during prolonged skin-to-skin contact such as kissing, cuddling, intimate physical contact, and/or touching items that previously touched the infectious rash/bodily fluids.
