Sexually Transmitted Disease  (STD) The Health District participates in surveillance and partner notification. Anyone sexually active is at risk for getting an STD, or STI (sexually transmitted disease or infection).

One out of every four Americans contract an STI in their lifetime. You are at a higher risk if you:

Have sex with an infected partner
Have more than one sexual partner
Change partners often
Have sex with someone who had many sexual partners

Early diagnosis and treatment of STIs is very important. So is talking with your partner.
