SHIELD FAQ - What rules should be followed prior to taking SHIELD's COVID test?


You are not able to eat, drink or put anything in your mouth one hour prior to taking the salvia-based test. This includes smoking, drinking water, using mouth wash, etc.

If you are able, we recommend drink lots of water and brushing your teeth one hour prior to testing.
