The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to allow the county’s Public Health Department to receive a $18,950 award from the state’s same department to help prevent sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia, the rates of which jumped between 2008 and 2012. The money, good from January 2014 through June 2015, will be put toward community outreach and STD counseling, testing, and treatment.
