Tracking SARS-CoV-2 in the Wastewater Across a Range of North Carolina Municipalities
Lead Researchers: Rachel Noble, UNC Institute of Marine Sciences and Francis de los Reyes, NC State University
This project is a collaboration between multiple universities, including UNC-Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, UNC Charlotte, UNC Wilmington and the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality.
Tracking aggregate pandemic infection through wastewater treatment has been proven to be an effective and non-evasive method of understanding the social mobility, individual community variations, and movement of undiagnosed and asymptomatic infections.
