  • Order your FREE at-home saliva test kit from Vault.

  • The test kit will arrive at your home via expedited shipping.

  • Log on for a virtual visit with a Vault test supervisor; they will show you how to collect your saliva sample. You must not eat, drink, smoke, or chew anything for 30 minutes before your testing session.

  • Ship your sample to the lab using a prepaid UPS package.

  • Get your result 24 to 48 hours after your sample arrives at the lab.

If you test positive
  • A positive test result on an at-home COVID-19 test does NOT need to be confirmed by a medical provider.

  • You do NOT need to report your positive result to the SD-DOH.

  • Isolate yourself from others. As much as possible, stay in a specific room and away from other people and pets in your home.

  • Tell your close contacts that they may have been exposed to COVID-19. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 48 (or 2 days) before the person has any symptoms or tests positive. By letting your close contacts know they may have been exposed to COVID-19, you are helping to protect everyone.

  • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek medical care immediately.
