MMWR and Medscape are offering a new, free CE on antimicrobial treatment and prophylaxis of plague, including recommendations for naturally acquired infections and bioterrorism response. Plague causes outbreaks in the U.S. and other countries and is a bioterrorism risk. In a vital update to national preparedness measures, CDC released guidelines for U.S. healthcare providers on treatment of plague infections and prophylaxis of people potentially exposed to plague.

A new study finds that during August 19─December 21, 2020, as U.S. COVID-19 cases increased, reported anxiety symptoms increased by 13% and depression symptoms increased 15% among adults. Trends in adult mental health symptoms during the pandemic mirrored trends in national weekly COVID-19 cases. Continued real-time monitoring of mental health trends is critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more: bit.ly/MMWR7040e3

During June–July 2021, Louisiana Department of Health reported 321 COVID-19 cases in outbreaks at 28 summer camps, mostly in staff and campers who were eligible but not vaccinated. Most camps did not require masks indoors or vaccination for eligible staff and campers.

The predominance of the Delta variant highlights the need to implement COVID-19 prevention measures, particularly in settings with large numbers of children younger than 12 years old, who are not yet eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Recent research shows that comprehensive mitigation measures, such as vaccination of everyone eligible, wearing masks indoors, regular screening testing, physical distancing, cohorting (or grouping), and increasing ventilation indoors can control spread of COVID-19, including the Delta variant. These should be recommended guidelines for summer camps. bit.ly/MMWR7040e2

New CDC MMWR looking at nine overnight camps showed low rates of COVID-19 with multiple prevention strategies in place, including high vaccination rates, frequent testing, pre-arrival masks, masking while at camp, physical distancing, cohorting (podding), and handwashing. Out of more than 7,000 staff members and campers, nine tested positive for COVID-19, with six identified through screening testing and three through symptomatic diagnostic testing. These findings can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in congregate settings. Learn more at: bit.ly/MMWR7040e1

Compared to heteros*xual and le***an women, bis*xual women experience the highest rates of male-perpetrated forced s*x, including non-voluntary first in*******se and forced vaginal in*******se at any other point in their life. First experiences of forced s*x occurred at younger ages for both bis*xual and le***an women than heteros*xual women. We need comprehensive strategies to prevent s*xual violence and child s*xual abuse, including tailoring existing prevention efforts to meet the needs of le***an and bis*xual women. This will help ensure that we use effective prevention efforts. Learn more: https://bit.ly/mm7038a3

Preliminary data from v-safe, CDC’s smartphone-based vaccine safety monitoring tool, found that that side effects after an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine were similar to those from second vaccine doses. The most commonly reported side effects were mild, moderate, and short-lived and included arm pain at the shot location, fatigue, and headache. These initial findings found no unexpected patterns following an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more in a new MMWR report: bit.ly/MMWR92821

A new CDC study shows that mask use is a critical strategy to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in school settings among students. Counties with school mask requirements had lower increases in case rates of COVID-19 in children and adolescents after the start of the 2021–2022 school year, compared with counties without school mask requirements. CDC recommends universal indoor mask use for students, staff, and others in the kindergarten through 12th grade school setting to control the spread of COVID-19.

A new CDC MMWR compared mask policies and school-associated COVID-19 outbreaks at nearly 1,000 K–12 schools in two Arizona counties from July 15–August 31, 2021. The study found schools without a mask requirement were 3.5 times more likely to experience a COVID-19 outbreak than schools that had a mask requirement in place at the beginning of the school year. CDC recommends universal indoor masking in K–12 schools, regardless of vaccination status, as part of a broad prevention plan with multiple strategies. Learn more: bit.ly/MMWR92421

To estimate the scope of COVID-19 disruptions to in-school learning, researchers from CDC and Johns Hopkins University partnered to develop a statistical model that estimated 96% of K-12 schools are open during the 2021-2022 school year for full-time, in-person learning, and 1.5% of schools had closed for at least one day through September 10. An estimated 1800 schools have had school closures attributable to COVID-19 outbreaks, affecting the education and well-being of 933,000 students.
Federal, state and local public health and education agencies can use this information to inform appropriate COVID-19 preventive measures. To prevent further K-12 school closures, CDC recommends using multiple prevention strategies, including vaccination, universal indoor masking, implementation of testing, and social distancing.

CDC reported on a program which marketed free rapid HIV self-tests to gay and bis*xual men in certain areas of the U.S. from March 2020-March 2021. Most participants reported that they had either never tested for HIV (36%) or that it had been over a year since their last HIV test (56%), and 86% of participants reported recent HIV risk. HIV self-testing programs and other adaptive HIV prevention strategies can help meet the goal to end the HIV epidemic in the United States: https://bit.ly/mm7038a2

Three reports published in today’s MMWR highlight the importance of COVID-19 prevention measures in schools to protect students, teachers, and staff AND keep schools open. The first report showed that while 96% of schools have offered in-person learning during the 2021-2022 school year, COVID-19 continues to cause disruptions as closures due to COVID-19 have affected more than 900,000 students. The second report showed that schools without in-school mask requirements were 3.5 times more likely to have a COVID-19 outbreak than schools with an in-school mask requirement. The third report showed that counties without school mask requirements experienced larger increases in pediatric COVID-19 case rates after the start of school compared with counties that had school mask requirements. These findings reinforce the importance of following CDC recommendations to limit spread of COVID-19 in K-12 schools including wearing masks indoors and vaccinating all eligible students, teachers, and staff.

A CDC-supported study looking at a COVID-19 outbreak among people incarcerated in a Texas federal prison found high infection rates among vaccinated and unvaccinated people, with unvaccinated people more likely to experience severe illness and death than vaccinated people. This outbreak demonstrates how vaccination and other prevention measures, including testing and masks, are necessary to slow spread and save lives in congregate settings. Learn more:

Great case demonstrating how effective masks are. We did not have this kind of data early on but we do now and we should re-enforce this as often as possible. If we all do our part, we can get back to work safely, minimize suffering and death while keeping the economy going. Mask + distancing + hand washing.
