Let's Get Checked - Self-administered nasal COVID-19 test
These nasal kits are for Academic Division employees who wish to test themselves, they are NOT for employees who are required to participate in the weekly saliva prevalence testing at a UVA testing location.
Asymptomatic, benefits-eligible Academic Division faculty and staff (includes School of Medicine staff and faculty without clinical privileges, School of Nursing, and Post-Doctoral Fellows) may order a LetsGetChecked (LGC) kit on the UVA portal. You may only order for yourself, and only through this portal. LGC kits are non-transferrable to others.
Test Type: The LGC kit is a self-administered nasal PCR COVID-19 test. Read more on the Let'sGetChecked's website.
Timeline: You must allow time for shipping both ways - sending to you and return. The pre-paid return label is next day air service. Do not collect your sample on a Saturday or Sunday as shipping services do not operate on the weekends. LGC does not process samples on Sundays.
Your diligence in returning your test has an impact on when your results are posted. You need to return your test on the same business day you take it to ensure sample viability.
