My understanding is they look for virus fragments, as that is what is left in waste water from the... uh... source.

But Covid is too new for nostalgia. To be really hip these days you need to contract polio. It's been detected in waste water in at least 2 US cities. As "Things You REALLY Don't Want" go, polio is near the top of my list.

I never really thought hand sanitizer to be an effectual defense against covid. Just my unprofessional nobody opinion. Now this monkeypox is giving me second thought about all that sanitizer. Since it's spread by contact and bodily fluid contact, at least mostly, some sanitizer at the dump station and may other places certainly won't hurt. I put some latex gloves in my wet bay covid, poxes, and such aside it's just a good idea. Given how I've seen the odd little splash or spatter dealing with hoses, some eye protection wouldn't be out of the question.

Uh, this is not how you get monkeypox.
