Wisconsinites will soon able to take an at-home COVID-19 test, Gov. Tony Evers announced Tuesday.

Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced a new partnership with Vault Medical Services that will provide at-home COVID-19 saliva collection kits for everyone with or without symptoms at no cost.

“We believe that anyone in Wisconsin who needs to be tested for COVID-19 should have access to a test, and I’m proud of our statewide testing efforts throughout this pandemic,” said Evers in a press release. “We also know that getting to a health care provider or a community testing site isn’t easy for everyone, and that’s why we are excited to offer this new option to make testing even more accessible for folks across our state.”

For those wanting a collection kit, they can order one online and have it shipped to their home. The kit will include instructions on how to collect saliva and ship it back for processing.
