Some of the recommendations are "avoid kissing" and having relations "with your clothes on or covering areas where rash or sores are present, reducing as much skin-to-skin contact as possible."
Patients and those who feel they may have been exposed to the virus are also advised to "have virtual sex with no in-person contact", and "masturbate together at a distance of at least 6 feet, without touching each other and without touching any rash or sores."
They also encouraged people washing their "hands, fetish gear, sex toys and any fabrics (bedding, towels, clothing) after having sex."
The peculiar guideline has also seemingly provoked The New York City Department of Health's odd recommendation that those engaging in sex use "glory holes" to prevent the spread of Covid-19 amid the coronavirus pandemic, as noted by The New York Post.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is also investigating whether monkeypox can be sexually transmitted after the virus was identified in a patient's semen.
