Disease trends in a facility’s wastewater can guide mitigation response efforts and prevent localized COVID-19 outbreaks. However, understanding these data and trends can be challenging for decision makers. COVID-19 Risk Levels provide a simplified interpretation of a facility’s wastewater data to help customers prepare for changes in COVID-19 activity. This algorithm turns data from recent wastewater samples into a simple and informative alert that categorizes the probability a facility will see sustained, elevated COVID-19 activity in the near future.
In this brief, you’ll learn:
- COVID-19 Risk Levels provide a simple, informative alert system
- What COVID-19 Risk Levels mean and how they can be used
- The methodology behind developing COVID-19 Risk Levels
