Containment of Covid-19 on a College Campus via Wastewater-Based Epidemiology (Webcast)

WateReuse Arizona Section Meeting & Webinar 9:00 am – 10:00 am Pacific | 12:00 – 1:00 pm Eastern WateReuse Members: Free Others: $49 PDHs: 1 Register Now! Wastewater-based epidemiology was utilized to detect SARS-Cov-19 in the wastewater of student dorms upon re-entry of University of  Arizona students in the fall semester of 2020. Positive wastewater samples allowed for subsequent targeted clinical testing of dorm students and the identification of both symptomatic and asymptomatic Covid-19 infections. Early detection of infected individuals resulted in reduced exponential spread of Covid-19 and allowed the university to remain open throughout the semester.
