Step 3: Collect Your Saliva Sample
Updated: February 23
Included in your kit is an instruction leaflet that will guide you through each step in detail. Please follow these instructions carefully.
A few key important considerations:
- Spitting could conceivably transmit coronavirus, so please produce your saliva sample when you are alone in your own room.
- Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes prior to collecting your saliva sample. Do it before having coffee, eating breakfast, or brushing your teeth — or wait until you haven’t consumed anything in the prior 30 minutes.
- You must collect your saliva sample on the same day that you return your test kit.
Watch the video to see how to collect your sample.
