If you’re someone who likes to prepare for the days, weeks and months ahead, having a COVID-19 self-collection kit will be immensely helpful as COVID-19 restrictions ease. Feel more confident planning trips, visiting loved ones, and hosting and attending events by using a COVID-19 at-home self-collection test kit authorized by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before you go.
As the world opens its doors once again, protect yourself from COVID-19’s unpredictability by getting one of our COVID self-collection kits shipped to your home. It’s easy to use. Just follow the instructions in the kit, collect your sample and return your sample to the GENETWORX lab in the prepaid FedEx mailer in your kit.
Much like wearing a mask and socially distancing, purchasing a reliable COVID-19 at-home self-collections test kit is a responsible measure to maintain your health and even your community’s health.
Frequent Travelers Need Reliable COVID-19 Testing
Whether for work or leisure, or when traveling, you need fast and accurate COVID-19 test results. Airlines and airports have testing requirements in place, demanding a negative test before boarding a plane.
For ultimate convenience, accuracy and speed, you can order a GENETWORx COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Kit at any time, self-administer from any location, ship immediately to the lab, and receive results within 48 hours of lab receipt.
As you once again start traveling for weddings, sporting events and family trips, you can buy this at-home self-collection kit as part of your routine planning.
The International Testing Process
Navigating another country’s testing process and finding last-minute in-person testing appointments are unnecessary if you have a GENETWORx COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Kit. While some destinations require COVID testing before travel and/or after arrival, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that travelers are tested within three days of departure from the U.S.1
Educate yourself on the destination country’s healthcare system when traveling outside the U.S.
For stronger preparedness, you can order a COVID-19 at-home self-collection kit to use after you return to the U.S. as well.
Note: Your GENETWORx prepaid, lab-return FedEx envelope can only be mailed within the U.S. For travel back to the U.S., you will need to have a negative test in the country you’re visiting before your return flight to the U.S.
More Vaccinated People Could Mean Fewer COVID Testing Sites
The current number of testing sites will likely decrease as vaccine distribution increases and COVID-19 cases fall. Though U.S. testing numbers are approaching 370 million, the average number of tests conducted every day in America has plummeted by a third since January.
As testing locations reduce over time, it may become difficult or even impossible to schedule an appointment for COVID-19 testing. Don’t compromise your ability to travel or attend events because you can’t get to a testing site in time. If you have a pre-existing condition and rely on ready-access testing for early COVID-19 detection, there’s no better solution than a COVID-19 self-collection kit you can do at home.
Put the power of testing into your own hands. GENETWORx COVID-19 at-home self-collection kits are easy to use. Instructions are clear and simple.
- Collect your nasal sample using the gentle swabs enclosed in the kit.
- Mail the sample to our GENETWORx lab using the prepaid mailer in the kit.
- Receive 99% accurate results within 24 to 48 hours of lab sample receipt.
At-Home COVID-19 Collection Kits: Essential for People With Pre-Existing Conditions
In-person COVID testing sites provide higher—and potentially life-threatening—risk to those with pre-existing conditions. These groups may want or need more frequent testing for early detection and treatment of COVID-19. COVID at-home self-collection test kits allow those with pre-existing medical conditions, mobility restrictions or physical disabilities to conveniently collect a test sample for COVID-19 from the comfort of their own homes.
If you have a pre-existing condition (e.g. heart disease, asthma, diabetes), you are more likely to experience severe complications from COVID-19, and you deserve comfort in the testing process. In addition, those mental health conditions can benefit from the flexibility and convenience of FDA-authorized COVID at-home self-collection kits.
Consider a COVID at-home self-collection test kit as part of your safety toolkit along with social distancing, wearing a face mask and frequent hand washing. As the world adapts to the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, home collection tests will grow to be an important preventative measure.
