LSU researchers to test campus wastewater for COVID-19 cases

For the last several months, researchers from the LSU College of Engineering and School of Veterinary Medicine have tested wastewater in various areas around East Baton Rouge Parish to track cases of coronavirus. What they have found, thus far, is that cases increased soon after Louisiana moved into Phase 2 and dropped after the city-parish instituted a mask-wearing mandate.
Now they will implement that research on the LSU campus to help determine numbers and location of cases.
