Some California students can now share their HIV and STD status by using their cellphones or computers.

It’s a free service that allows students to find “teen friendly” testing locations.

They can also obtain, store and privately share their status on online.

Officials say the website is being offered as an added sex education resource.

But it is not part of the district’s health education curriculum.

The program is available to students as young as 12.
