JUST IN: The wastewater monitoring program in #BTV has detected "the presence of two COVID-19 virus mutations that are associated with the B.1.1.7 variant." That's the one from the UK. Likely first proof that it's here in Vermont. More TK https://t.co/cX4o5RLLho

Our wastewater testing indicates that the UK variant of Covid is very likely here in #BTV at low levels. By identifying this early, we have an opportunity to heighten our vigilance and slow the spread of this more contagious form of the virus... 1/

The B.1.1.7 coronavirus variant has been found in Burlington. Should we be worried? We're already all on edge, all the time. We're already worried, but the prevention mechanisms are the same as before. It's just a reminder to keep doing them. From a science perspective, it's cool that we have this wastewater detection technology in Burlington.
