Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2020

Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2020 serves as a reminder that STDs remain a significant public health concern, even in the face of a pandemic. In 2020, COVID-19 significantly affected STD surveillance and prevention efforts. After reviewing preliminary 2021 surveillance data, it is clear the pandemic continued to affect trends in diagnosed and reported STDs. The 2020 and 2021 reports reflect the realities of a strained public health infrastructure, while simultaneously providing the most current data on reported cases of STDs in the United States. Trends presented in 2020 and 2021 should be interpreted cautiously.
