Fort Collins is Checking Your Poop for Coronavirus
If you live in Fort Collins, your poop is being checked for SARS-CoV2, which is the cause of the COVID-19 virus, according to the Coloradoan. While the testing is not specific to your personal toilet, it is a greater look into the community's health at large and the possible spread of the virus.
Testing the wastewater provides a potential alarm system for possible COVID-19 outbreaks, as the virus' molecules can be detected in a person's feces soon after infection. Overall, the wastewater from more than 65% of Colorado's population will be tested.
