Located to the northwest of Los Angeles County, lies Chino Hills. As recent as 2016 the city was ranked 7th safest overall in the U.S.A. Safe from crime, however, unfortunately, doesn’t equal safe from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
In 2017, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health called for community support in raising STD awareness. Their plan is to start a task force aimed at increasing the number of people getting screened for preventable diseases (HIV, STIs, etc.).
San Bernardino Public Health officials are encouraging all sexually active residents of the Chino Hills area to get tested and keep California healthy.
San Bernardino County reported large increases in both gonorrhea and chlamydia back in 2016. With 60 percent of all new STDs coming from teens and young adults (aged 15-24). After a quiet year of no newly reported cases of congenital syphilis in 2011, that number jumped to 20 in 2016 and continues to rise. Pregnant women with untreated infections risk their infants being born prematurely or worse—stillborn. Congenital syphilis should be completely preventable, it’s important to get tested at least once a year for STDs. Yes, even if you have no symptoms.
If you need to get tested in the Chino Hills area and are looking for cheap, affordable, or even potentially free STD testing options, here are a few suggestions.
