N.B. missing from new federal COVID-19 wastewater monitoring dashboard – CBC

Data from Halifax and N.L. included in dashboard aimed at helping people make decisions about precautions

May 09, 2022

The Public Health Agency of Canada has launched a new online COVID-19 wastewater surveillance dashboard to illustrate trends in various jurisdictions, and help people make decisions about personal precautions, but New Brunswick is not represented.

Data from Halifax and 17 communities in Newfoundland and Labrador is included, along with various areas in Alberta, B.C., Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.

P.E.I. just started wastewater testing last Thursday.

New Brunswick Department of Health officials did not respond Monday to a request for comment.

Last month, a spokesperson said the province’s wastewater surveillance working group was assessing the feasibility of expanding a pilot project being conducted in Moncton as part of a research project at Dalhousie University.
