Unfortunately, your state has the third highest rates of primary and secondary syphilis with Louisiana and Georgia the only states with higher rates. Syphilis is the least common of the three STDs but is a concern because of the increasing number of babies born with syphilis.
It is passed on with an infected mother. There were 142 babies born with syphilis in California in 2015. This is a jump from the 30 cases is 2012. California has the second highest rate of congenital syphilis in the United States.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Covina, CA
Comprehensive sex education is the law in California. This means that all public schools in California are required by law to teach comprehensive sex education and HIV prevention education at least once in middle school and once in high school.
Comprehensive sex education includes learning about anatomy and birth control. It also means students are taught about healthy relationships, decision-making, and more.
This sex education should give students information to make healthy decisions about relationships and sexual and reproductive health. The sex education curriculum in school should include information about:
Sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sex trafficking
Adolescent relationship abuse, intimate partner violence and sexual coercion
Sexual orientation and sexuality
Gender identity, gender roles, and gender stereotypes
Consent, communication, and healthy decision-making
HIV prevention and other STD prevention including testing and treatment
Pregnancy prevention, parenting, adoption, and abortion
It is the right of a student to get this information in schools. With a mailing address in your city, a group called Teen Source asks students if they are actually getting comprehensive sex education at school.
Teen Source provides students with a questionnaire online to fill out to say if they have not received sex education covering all of the above. Teen Source also gives students a chance to explain if they have received information that is not accurate.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Covina, CA
A look at demographics can help our understanding of STI rates in your city and region. The demographic that is most likely to be infected and least likely to get tested is people 25 and younger. Some experts blame the rates of STDs in this demographic in part to the use of new hook up apps that lead to casual sex among people 25 and younger.
Concerning the jump in the state for STDs, officials are not sure of all the reasons. People are not using condoms regularly so this could lead to the higher STD rates. People are going without testing and treatment and unknowingly spreading STDs. This is another possible reason for the higher rates.
We also see reports that STD prevention systems have been weakened because local and state clinics have reduced capacity or closed in the last few years. This also contributes to higher STI rates.
There are 4 times more Hispanic/Latino residents than any other race or ethnicity. Concerning your county, HIV diagnoses were 45 percent for Hispanics/Latinos in 2013.
HIV diagnoses were 85 percent for men having sex with men in 2013. Gay men saw the highest rates for STDs. Twice as many women suffer from chlamydia compared to men.
Men suffer in higher numbers than women from other STDs including syphilis and HIV. STD rates also are generally higher in areas with a high poverty rate.

We do not know the precise cause for why people do not get tested but some in your area are offering STD tests to be ordered online and mailed to homes. You provide a sample, send it back to a lab, and get results within a few days.
We do not know how reliable these services are. The hope is to get approval for these tests from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sell similar tests in stores. These tests are not all cleared by the FDA to be sold online.
The Los Angeles Department of Public Health noted how difficult it can be to get people to go to one of their STD clinics. The county then offered kits online to test for chlamydia and gonorrhea for women under the age of 25. This group should have annual screens for these two STIs as these women are considered at risk and primarily bearing the consequences of the STIs.
Planned Parenthood also launched an app in California. Through the app men and women can order chlamydia and gonorrhea tests.
