The National Coalition of STD Directors released Phase II of its COVID-19 and the State of the STD Field Report this week, finding that almost 80% of the STD/HIV health department workforce is or has been redeployed to COVID-19 emergency response for any period of time. The report is a three-month follow up to the initial report released in May 2020. The report highlights the immediate response of the STD prevention field to the pandemic; describes the field’s ongoing, longer term response to COVID-19; and examines what effect this response continues to have on our nation’s STD programs and the work of DIS staff.
