VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Did someone order a COVID-19 test?

Vault Health is partnering with DoorDash for same-day delivery of its Saliva Test Kits in Virginia Beach.

Orders for at-home test kits placed before 12 p.m. CST will be delivered same-day. Patients will receive an email and a text message with a link to track their delivery.

The Vault Health COVID-19 Saliva Test Kit is a supervised saliva collection PCR test for COVID-19 that is performed under remote supervision of Vault staff through a telehealth visit to confirm identity, ensure proper saliva sample collection and quantity for the most accurate results and answer any questions. Test results are available in as little as 24 hours upon receipt at the partner lab.

The tests costs $119, and so far Vault has administered more than 7 million of them.

The test kit includes a prepaid overnight shipping envelope to be delivered to one of Vault's partner laboratories.

"Vault makes diagnostic testing easy, comfortable, and very fast across the US. Our partnership with DoorDash unlocks same-day access to our easy to collect saliva COVID test, allowing a patient to spit into a tube and receive their results in 24 hours to get them back to travel, work, school, and family time," said Jason Feldman, Vault Founder and CEO. "We are excited to be among first to allow American's to say I need to do something with family, how to I test to see if I can get to see a relative, get back to work or travel safely."
