Latest report shows a large increase in Covid found in Palm Springs wastewater

The number of Covid viral copies found in Palm Springs’ wastewater has jumped by millions per liter in the past couple of weeks.

The latest wastewater report was presented during Thursday’s city council meeting. It revealed that the amount of measured copies of Covid has more than surpassed one million, even shooting up to nearly 7 million earlier this month. The number is well above what was reported last year, although, of course, the city has seen more visitors this year than it would have at this point last year, as vaccines still were not readily available for the community.
