Hi all…it seems that there are COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) webinars almost weekly. While this one also has a wastewater focus, there will be some information on the fate of the virus in the aquatic environment. Note that the webinar is at 10:00 EST tomorrow morning (July 9) and that space appears to be quite limited. However, as with other seminars it is being recorded and access will be available soon.
