Local authorities have previously tested wastewater to estimate the prevalence of Covid in various communities.

Testing dust from homes, hospitals, or even vacuum bags could play a similar role in understanding how widespread the virus might be, the experts said.

“For surveillance purposes, you need to know if you are picking up an outbreak that’s going on right now.”
