Additional Study Information: We want to examine if wastewater-based surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 is a valuable tool to detect SARS-CoV-2-positive individuals on campus prior to being identified by routine individual testing. We aim to enroll CU employees and students for active surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 carriage to be able to validate waste water surveillance findings. If successful this approach might inform targeted testing and can improve safety on campus.
