Am Fam Physician. 2021 Jan 1;103(1):8.

Incorrect listing of a state. In the Editorial “Closing Primary and Prenatal Care Gaps to Prevent Congenital Syphilis,” (July 15, 2020, p. 78), the sixth sentence of the first paragraph (page 78) incorrectly listed Minnesota as a state that does not require screening for syphilis during pregnancy. Minnesota began requiring such testing in 2019. The correct sentence should have read “Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Wisconsin do not require screening for syphilis during pregnancy, and third-trimester screening is optional in most states.6” The online version of this Editorial has been corrected.
