An Early Warning System to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
The goal of Healthy Davis Together is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and get the Davis community back to regular city activities as quickly and safely as possible. Environmental monitoring (regularly testing wastewater, indoor air, and certain surfaces) is another way we are learning about COVID-19 and opportunities to prevent its spread. While free COVID-19 testing at least once a week for everyone who lives and works in Davis and members of their household is the most important action for all of us to take, environmental monitoring is an important learning component that helps us see where we can step up prevention efforts even more.
Healthy Davis Together environmental monitoring is currently focused on city-wide wastewater (sewage) testing and piloting indoor air filter testing in schools.
