- Share implementation strategies for self-collected testing to minimize clinician exposure to COVID-19 when seeing clients for STD-related symptoms

- Identify changes to recommended syndromic treatment of urethritis, including treatment for gonorrhea and chlamydia

- Describe management recommendations for patients with genital ulcer disease
