People infected with COVID-19 can shed the virus through their stool, even if they don't have any symptoms. Testing a community's sewage (wastewater) can tell us if COVID-19 is increasing or decreasing in that community. Our scientists have developed a pan-Canadian wastewater network to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. This is in collaboration with provincial, territorial and municipal governments and academia across Canada.

Nucleic acid-based testing is also called molecular testing, and is often called PCR. Molecular tests detect the virus genetic material (nucleic acids). Public health laboratories in Canada and around the world use nucleic acid-based testing to diagnose COVID-19 infection. This test is the gold standard to diagnose active COVID-19 infection in patients with symptoms.

The first version of the National laboratory testing indication guidance for COVID-19 document was developed at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. The original guidance document was finalized and approved by the Special Advisory Committee on April 16, 2020. Since then, significant developments in four areas have prompted the need to review and update the guidance. This document was updated in May 2020 to reflect these developments.
