NCHHSTP Social Media Comment Policy

In line with CDC public comment policy, NCHHSTP supports the two-way exchange of ideas and encourages followers, interested persons, and organizations to share thoughts and opinions via social media. We expect this to be done in a respectful manner.

NCHHSTP does not agree with or endorse every comment individuals post on our pages. Our goal is to educate and share ideas/information with as many people as possible. Our policy is to accept the majority of comments made to our profiles and respond to comments that support public health.

Any comment made on NCHHSTP social media handles must relate to topics under discussion as they pertain to CDC, NCHHSTP, and its partners. We expect participants to treat each other with respect and reserve the right to delete or remove comments, exit conversations, and mute/block the profiles of commenters who engage in any of the following:

  • Introduce off-topic issues;
  • Discuss personal grievances;
  • Espouse religious and political beliefs;
  • Use profane, disrespectful, or obscene language;
  • Disparage persons/groups based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity;
  • Use hate speech or offensive/violent terms targeting specific individuals or groups;
  • Include nudity in profile or feed images;
  • Conduct or request participation in surveys;
  • Advertise or sell products or services;
  • Engage in spamming, phishing, or trolling;
  • Violate copyright laws

NCHHSTP reserves the right to (or not to) respond to comments. As a policy, NCHHSTP does not respond to medical questions. Only a health care provider can answer questions about your health.
