Wastewater analysis is an important tool in public health, and GO Health works with local wastewater treatment plants to collect samples routinely for analysis.  Because people who have an infectious disease often shed particles of germs in their stool, wastewater analysis can be used to monitor the presence of an infection within a community, track trends in common infections, or screen for infections at a specific site such as a nursing home.
