COVID-19 Screening

Self-Administered Viral Marker Test

HireRight’s U.S.-based COVID-19 screening solution offers simple, self-administered viral marker* tests that can be performed in the safety and security of an employee's home. The test detects the presence of coronavirus in a saliva sample that is easy to collect and is not "technique dependent". 



How It Works

Test kits will be sent directly to the employee's preferred location. The employee will complete a short online questionnaire and self-administer the test (simple saliva test). Once completed, the specimen is mailed to the accredited lab in provided postage-paid packaging. Final test results provided by the lab will be reported to both the employee and the employer.
