VAULT
 Test Type    Saliva-based PCR (Rutgers Test) - IBX - Infinity Biologix
 Turnaround Time    24-72 hours
 Process
  • IDHW (Idaho Department of Health & Welfare)  purchased bulk tests to stage at the Public Health Districts and facilities/entities for priority populations
  • Individuals will need to register for the test at COVID.VLT.CO (not .com)
  • The test can be taken at the facility/entity or at home
  • The test needs to be witnessed by a person. There is no special medical training needed to witness the test. Staff need to be trained with the PPT slides from VAULT
  • Tests administered in person at the facility/entity will be the easiest to witness. Staff can also watch the individual on a video chat or Zoom call if needed
  • VAULT covers the standing orders for the tests
  • Each test has a prepaid UPS mailer. Individuals complete the registration, take the test, put the test in the biohazard bag, put the bag with the test back in the padded envelope and tape it shut, and put the padded envelope in the prepaid mailer.
  • Samples need to be taken to a UPS Store. Do not drop the samples at one of the secondary UPS "access points" or freestanding drop boxes that may accept packages but don't always offer the full range of UPS services (e.g., next day air).
  • To find a UPS store to drop off samples, visit the website at: https://www.theupsstore.com/tools/find-a-store
Billing, Cost,  Reimbursement    IDHW has paid for the tests and analysis
