Detection and quantification of SARS-CoV-2 levels in wastewater can be a useful predictor of potential COVID-19 outbreaks. However, the interpretation of the surveillance data can be challenging. Join us as our panel of experts discuss the use of wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 for different communities and how that data is being used for early detection and risk mitigation.

The panel will also share their thoughts on what role wastewater-based epidemiology will play in the COVID-19 pandemic post-vaccination.

Topics to be covered in the discussion include:

  • Benefits and challenges of wastewater-based epidemiology
  • How different communities are leveraging monitoring data
  • The importance of biomarker and control selection
  • How cross-community datasets can be leveraged for post-vaccine disease monitoring
