A second presumptive monkeypox case has been identified in Colorado.

The case is awaiting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmation, according to a Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment news release.

“The new presumptive case is a young adult male who sought care in the Denver area and is improving and isolating at home,” the CDPHE said.

The first possible case in the state was announced by health officials on Thursday. That patient is described as a young man from the Denver area who had traveled to Canada, which is dealing with a monkeypox outbreak.
