The CDC quietly released a statement announcing the start of its Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance program. While the program was first introduced during the pandemic specifically to screen for COVID-19, this announcement from the CDC informs us that it are now expanding the program to test for other viruses as well. “The expansion of the Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance program to flu, RSV, and other pathogens is essential as we head into fall respiratory season. The TGS program, which began during the COVID-19 pandemic, acted as an early warning system to detect new and rare variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and will do the same for other respiratory viruses going forward,” the CDC said. In total, the program has been expanded to screen for over 30 different pathogens. According to the CDC, the way that this program will be implemented in airports across the country will be three-fold: it will involve taking nasal swabs of arriving passengers, testing the aircraft wastewater, and testing samples of the wastewater in seven major airports.
