ECTOR COUNTY, Texas —

In honor of National Sexually Transmitted Disease Awareness Month, The Ector County Health Department is offering a three-day walk-in STD testing clinic Tuesday through Thursday from 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. 

ECHD said STD cases in the Permian Basin were at an all-time high before the COVID-19 pandemic and have increased since the pandemic started. 

They also said many STDs don’t have symptoms and testing is necessary to know a person’s status. 

They will be doing blood and urine testing and masks are required.

ECHD is located at 221 N Texas Avenue in Odessa.
