Standards to Support an Enduring Capability in Wastewater Surveillance for Public Health
June 14, 2021 - June 15, 2021
The goal of this workshop is to identify and prioritize standards needs and technology/measurement gaps and propose a potential path forward to develop standards that help enable a robust, comparable wastewater surveillance capability. Topics to be discussed include lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic response, the state of the art in measurement science and technology for the entire wastewater surveillance workflow, and challenges in achieving comparable wastewater surveillance results across locations. Stakeholder input will inform future standards development activities, including consensus-based documentary standards focused on best practices as well as reference materials, and ensure that any standards developed are fit for purpose and aligned with the needs of the community.
