What you need to know

Wyoming offers free at-home COVID-19 testing through a company called Vault. These tests are available to Wyoming residents at no cost; insurance is not necessary.

This saliva-based test does not require a nasal swab. The test uses high-quality laboratory technology for a high level of effectiveness. The sample collection process is performed under the supervision of a Vault healthcare provider through an online, video-based telehealth visit.

Testing Details

Follow the instructions on the Vault Health site to order. You may see cost information displayed, but once you enter your address and reach the payment page the cost is waived for Wyoming residents.

The kit will be shipped directly to your residence, where you can collect a sample during your telehealth visit. You must have an Internet connection to complete this part of the process. During your telehealth visit, you will be asked to show a photo ID so the test supervisor can confirm the patient they are observing is the same person who ordered the test.

You will then send your sample to the Vault laboratory for testing. Results are expected from the laboratory within 48 hours from when samples are received.ORDER A FREE AT-HOME COVID-19 TESTING KIT FROM VAULT
