BC health officials say an investigation has determined there are no known cases of monkeypox in the province.
Canada's chief public health officer said earlier today that a couple dozen people were under investigation for the viral disease, including a few contacts in BC.
But a statement from Provincial Health Services Authority and the BC Centre for Disease Control says officials interviewed two possible contacts in B-C and determined they had not been exposed.
