Los Angeles County health officials said Friday they have confirmed local transmission of monkeypox, with some recently identified patients having no history of recent travel that might account for their infections, and some attending large events that may have spread the illness.

As of Friday, there were 22 cases of monkeypox in the county, and health officials said some recent infections have occurred “among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men who attended large events where the exposure to monkeypox may have occurred.”

Health officials said they are working with organizers of the unspecified events to notify people of possible exposures.
