The Water Research Foundation to Host Congressional Briefing on Environmental Surveillance of the Genetic Fingerprint of COVID-19 in Sewersheds
On May 21, The Water Research Foundation (WRF) will host a Congressional Briefing on the current state of knowledge on environmental surveillance of the genetic fingerprint of COVID-19 in sewersheds. Environmental surveillance holds great promise as a tool that could inform our understanding of COVID-19 prevalence in communities. The virtual Briefing will include successful case examples and near-term research priorities for accelerating the progress of this important work.
