New Infographic for Local Health Departments Promotes Wastewater Surveillance for SARS-CoV-2

Oct 04, 2021 | Emily D'Angelo

Wastewater surveillance is a valuable public health tool that can support local health departments and leaders during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As implementation of this early infection detection technology continues to expand, it is essential that local public health become familiar with the process. The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), supported by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has developed an easy-to-read infographic describing the workings of wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 (the causative agent of COVID-19), how this process can help local health departments stay ahead of the pandemic, and how to get involved with implementing this system!

Access the infographic.
