February 14 is National Condom Day, a time to remind county residents about the importance of protecting themselves and their sexual partners against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Anne Arundel County has the fourth highest rates of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and primary and secondary syphilis infections among counties throughout Maryland. STIs are often present without symptoms, so the Department of Health urges all residents to learn what STIs are, how to prevent them, and how to get tested and treated.
