Test type and results

Staff and volunteers will help individuals sign-in online to the testing lab’s website (Vault Health) and then gather the self-administered saliva tests for expedited delivery for processing. Results will be provided by Vault Health through their regular options for notification. Ramsey County will not have access to results.

“We are very appreciative of the Minnesota Department of Health who has provided the test kits and the city of Saint Paul for partnering with us to open this site,” said Sara Hollie, Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health Director. “This expanded capacity to provide tests to community is vital because we know it’s one of the most effective COVID-19 mitigation strategies – as is vaccination, masking and staying home if you are sick.”
