ALARMING NEWS--New Jersey health officials and lawmakers are alarmed about the rising rate of certain 6a00d8341bf7d953ef0176176315f9970c-800wi sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and infections. An NJ1015.com review of state Health Department information reveals that STD cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were recorded in nearly every community in New Jersey in 2015, the most recent year for which data is available.
