Wastewater surveillance program results

Queensland Health has partnered with researchers from the University of Queensland and the CSIRO to deliver a wastewater surveillance program for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The results from this program will add to the information obtained through clinical testing and enhance Queensland Health’s already comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What does a detection of SARS-CoV-2 mean?

The test detects SARS-CoV-2 genetic material. Detections may be related to a recovered case who is still shedding but is no longer infectious, or may indicate that there is an infectious person living or visiting the area who has not yet been identified.

What will Queensland Health do if SARS-CoV-2 is detected?

A detection of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater will be considered carefully alongside other information available to Queensland Health, such as recent known cases of COVID-19 in that area. Typically, an expert panel will be convened by the public health unit to evaluate the circumstances surrounding each detection of SARS-CoV-2 and advise on further measures if necessary.

What should I do if SARS-CoV-2 has been detected in wastewater in my area?

Any detections highlight the importance of getting tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19. Find information about symptoms of COVID-19 and the locations of fever clinics across Queensland. Stay home and isolate until you get the results and your symptoms resolve.

In addition, please follow the advice that applies in all instances:

  • Stay 1.5 metres away from other people—think two big steps.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitiser after physical contact with other people or commonly touched surfaces.
  • Sneeze or cough into your arm or a tissue. Then put the tissue in the bin and wash or sanitise your hands.
  • Comply with current public health directions.

What does it mean when the map or the table shows "no samples taken"?

Sites added recently won’t have historical results. In rare instances, there can be issues with taking and transporting samples to the laboratory for analysis.

Why isn't my community included in the wastewater surveillance program?

Locations for sample collection have been chosen to represent larger population centres, popular holiday towns and some communities close to the border with NSW. More testing locations may be added to the program in the future.

Where can I view historical results?

Queensland’s wastewater surveillance program commenced in late July 2020. Though this page shows only the most recent results, historical results are available on the Open Data Portal.

Which wastewater treatment plant services my suburb?

If you are unsure which wastewater treatment plant services your suburb, you can view suburbs either wholly or partially serviced by the wastewater treatment plants included in this program.

Is wastewater surveillance practised in other areas?

Wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 is being or has been practised in other states in Australia, as well as in Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, New Zealand, the United States and other countries.
