As of August 10, 2022, there were 10,392 total confirmed monkeypox/orthopox virus cases in America and, for restoration and cleaning professionals, having the right preventative measures and safety standards in place is highly important. Fortunately, the experts have provided insightful solutions that leaders can utilize for these very concerns.
