Wastewater Sampling Services for the Detection of Infectious Diseases
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently came out with a new public health tool to understand the spread of COVID-19 in a community. The CDC, along with the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is initiating a National Wastewater Surveillance System. Data collected from the testing of untreated wastewater (sewage) has been a successful method of early detection for other diseases such as polio.
Wastewater monitoring provides an early opportunity to detect COVID-19 from asymptomatic carriers and up to 5 days prior to physical COVID-19 related symptoms within the community. This lead time can provide significant advantages to commercial, residential, educational, manufacturing, and government sectors to develop mitigation plans to ensure community safety and potentially limit any interruption of daily operations.
