Bettermeant Health Noted for Wastewater Testing Efforts That Could Suppress COVID-19 Outbreaks
A Nossaman client, Bettermeant Health, was featured in the Scranton Times-Tribune article, “Wastewater Tests May Provide Early Warning Of Covid-19 Outbreaks” (subscription required). The article examines the City of Scranton's involvement in a pilot project for wastewater testing, which could act as an early warning signal of a COVID-19 outbreak. Bettermeant Health is coordinating the COVID-19 public health monitoring program for the City, working with Mayor Paige Gebhardt Cognetti, utilities, epidemiologists and other officials in its efforts.
