Since then, subsequent cases have been confirmed in at least 100 countries, including the United States. This webinar will discuss current biosafety challenges in the public health laboratory community related to monkeypox testing. Participants will hear from public health laboratory professionals on their biosafety procedures across their institutions during this response. This roundtable will also be recorded and made available for those unable to listen live.2022-10-12T17:00:00Z2022-10-12T18:00:00Zhttps://aphl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_MGsw0MzNROC1UU6ywAkhOA, https://aphl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_MGsw0MzNROC1UU6ywAkhOA
