COVID-WEB wastewater data now available to the public

Curious about the COVID trends in your municipality? Now, in addition to the number of cases on the county’s public health websites, you can check how much SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is in the wastewater.

Since the start of the pandemic, UC Berkeley’s COVID-WEB team, led by Prof. Kara Nelson, has been working with public health officials and wastewater services to monitor how much SARS-CoV-2 is secreted by people in California communities. Individuals infected with COVID-19 — whether they have symptoms or are asymptomatic — shed the genetic material of the virus in their feces, so wastewater can provide an accurate signal of how much virus is actually circulating in the community. This information complements the number of COVID-19 cases by providing a picture of infection trends unaffected by access to clinical testing or underreporting of test results at home – after all, everyone uses the bathroom.

COVID-WEB has shared the results of wastewater analysis with public health officials from the start of the project, in October 2020. Now, after a year and a half of refining methods and gaining experience with this new type of data, the information from Marin and 10 other California counties is available to the public at: https://data.covid-web.org/. The website includes an extensive FAQ section explaining how wastewater monitoring works. The COVID-WEB team also encourages other researchers to contact them if they would like to participate in further analyzes with the raw data.

More information available in News report from UC Berkeley.

Waiting time Moderna Booster shortened

As of this week, individuals who completed their Moderna COVID-19 vaccination series at least 5 months ago are now eligible to receive a booster dose from the same manufacturer. Previously, the waiting time for a booster dose of Moderna was 6 months. On Monday, January 10, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) adjusted the eligibility requirements for this brand to align with new recommendations issued last week by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Current requirements to qualify for COVID-19 booster are listed below:

  • You are 18 years or older and:
  • 5 months have passed since your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna; OR
  • 2 months have passed since your first dose of Johnson & Johnson

OR

  • You are 12 years or older and:
  • 5 months have passed since your second dose of Pfizer
