COVID-19 Test (At-Home Kit)
The Sussex County Board of Commissioners has partnered with LabCorp and Vault Health to offer free COVID-19 at-home testing for all of our residents.
You can order COVID-19 diagnostic collection kits online. After completing an online screening, if testing is necessary, you will be able to place an order for a home test kit. The kit enables you to collect a nasal swab at home and send it to a certified lab for processing. You will receive secure digital results within days.
You must be 18 or older to take this test. The average time to deliver results is currently 1-2 days from when your sample is received at the lab.
Vault Health (Sussex County residents only)
Only persons over the age of 6 are eligible for this test. Persons under the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian complete the registration for them.
