In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our community at USD has made a commitment to #ProtectThePack. We strongly encourage all event attendees to get tested for COVID-19 the week prior to their arrival on campus. With free, at-home saliva tests available, this process is simple and convenient. 

Ordering the Test

  1. Use this link to order a test kit 10 days before the event begins.
  2. Create an account and answer a few brief questions. 
  3. Your test kit will be shipped to your home address. Once you receive the kit in the mail, follow the Vault Health, Inc. instructions to connect with a testing supervisor on Zoom. Do not eat, drink, smoke or chew anything for 30 minutes prior to taking the test. Hydrate well 30 minutes prior to taking the test.
  4. Trained staff will walk you through the sample collection procedure step by step.
  5. Ship your sample to the lab using a prepaid UPS package.
  6. Results will be delivered to you via email 24-48 hours after the sample arrives at the laboratory.
