Our region has implemented a surveillance-based informative framework that combines wastewater testing with low-cost saliva-based qPCR screening to monitor SARS-CoV-2. We aim to rapidly inform our community of COVID-19 positive cases to keep schools and essential sectors of the economy open while protecting vulnerable populations.
We had an information session about the saliva screening on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, at 4 PM. Please view a recording of the information session here.

This interactive COVID-19 dashboard displays data from the number of tests completed through the UWindsor qPCR screening and Windsor and Essex County wastewater surveillance data.
The data on the dashboard is updated daily at 8:30 AM and 2:00 PM.
