2020 04 30 11 20 21 Dear Colleague COVID STD Protected View Word

Customizable ‘Dear Colleague’ Letter for Local Health Departments

Apr 08, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

NACCHO’s HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis team is working to develop materials for all local health departments to customize for their use during their COVID-19 response. The first of these is a “Dear Colleague” letter for healthcare providers in your jurisdiction with guidance on how to tackle STDs during this time. Just download the template (it will appear in your browser’s ‘downloads’ folder) and change the highlighted sections for use by your health department.

Thank you to the Washington State Department of Health, Infectious Disease Office for sharing their version of a similar letter which sparked this idea.
