COVID-19 Evaluation and Testing

At-Home Testing Kits for NJ Residents

The New Jersey Department of Health and Vault Medical Services have partnered to provide free COVID-19 testing kits to NJ residents. In addition to traditional COVID-19 testing at sites throughout the state, ordering a home test may be more convenient for people who have trouble leaving the house to get tested. 

To order a kit, any NJ resident can use this link: The registration process takes less than five minutes. No health insurance is required. The only necessary information is your COVID vaccine status, your name, and address. The saliva test must be sent through UPS to a lab for results that take approximately 48 hours.
