Provincetown Wastewater Surveillance - COVID

The Town of Provincetown in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Biobot Analytics are conducting routine surveillance of our wastewater (sewage) treatment system for the presence of the COVID virus. Data from wastewater testing is not meant to replace other COVID-19 surveillance system such as routine testing but offers our community trend data for early detection of virus spread. At this time, it is not possible to reliably and accurately predict the number of infected individuals in a community based on sewage testing. For more information please visit
