Since the beginning of the pandemic, the STD field has dedicated staff and resources to the fight against COVID-19, providing essential contact tracing and disease intervention services. In June 2020, NCSD published a report on our initial survey findings COVID-19 and the State of the STD Field, which described the field’s immediate response to the pandemic. Two months later, NCSD published a second report, COVID-19 and the State of the STD Field: Phase II, showing the high cost of this response on STD programs. This most recent report describes the impact COVID-19 disruptions continue to have on our nation’s STD programs and disease intervention specialists.
