Abstract/Summary

'Comment' article. Experience from the past month in most of the countries in which the school year has restarted is that as community cases rise, more children become infected. Wastewater-based epidemiology using near-source tracking (NST) provides public health officials insight into the carriage of COVID-19 within discrete groups of people for whom rapid action could alleviate the risk of a much larger outbreak. Wastewater NST could be the first line of defence for high-risk populations and could offer long-term advances in public health surveillance after COVID-19.
