Order a saliva test kit

Students, faculty and staff encouraged to test before returning to on-campus classes, work

“I urge all of our students to order a free, mail-in Vault Health test kit to get tested for COVID-19 before returning to campus so that they can isolate at home if they are COVID-19 positive. Any student or employee can currently order up to 12 Vault Health kits for at-home use,” said Kelly Wolgast, director of the COCC. I want to emphasize that students at all campus locations can take action now to order a test and complete it next week to know their health status before returning to campus.”
