Fast And Easy At-Home Testing for COVID-19
Traveling might seem like a distant memory for many of us, but with the holiday season in full swing, some of us might need to travel for essential reasons.
It's so important that those who will be traveling over the next few months take all the necessary precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible. Many countries have detailed guidelines on travel, so make yourself aware of these guidelines and put a plan in place that will get you to where you need to go in the safest way.
One important aspect of your travel plan this year should be a COVID-19 test. It gives you the knowledge you need to protect yourself and everyone else around you. With long lines and the increased personal contact associated with testing centers, many travelers are opting for Vault Health's at-home COVID-19 test kits.

It is important that we continue to follow the state, local, and CDC guidelines in order to keep ourselves, our families, and everyone safe during this time.
