West Virginians now have access to free in-home coronavirus test kits.

Gov. Jim Justice announced Wednesday that the state is partnering with Vault Health in offering testing kits to residents at no charge. The in-home tests are conducted with saliva samples and mailed back to the company.

After receiving an in-home testing kit, residents can set an online appointment with a representative from Vault Health who will walk a person through the testing process. Once a sample is collected, the test kit is mailed back to Vault Health. A result is expected within 24 to 72 hours after being received by the lab.

For those without access to the online application, a toll free number is available to request a free test kit.

To order a free testing kit, go to vaulthealth.com. A link to the website can also be found on the state’s coronavirus resource page.
