Welcome to Color COVID-19 testing

Welcome! Color is partnering with Red Bull to provide access to required COVID-19 testing. Please see important information below about timing.

1. Claim your kit.

When you claim your kit, you will be asked to provide the date when you need your results. You must claim your kit at least 10 days before you need your results.

For required regular weekly testing, you should be testing on the same day of each week (other than weeks where you are out on PTO). Please pay attention to emails and texts from Color about when to activate, collect, and return.

NOTE: because the system will only allow you to order one test at a time, you should repeat this step  4  times to ensure you have enough tests for the whole upcoming month.

If the kit your ordering is for a specific event, your test must be taken no more than 72 hours ahead of the event. 

2. Receive your kit.

Keep it in a safe place until you are notified that it’s time to activate your kit, collect your sample, and return the kit. If you activate your kit earlier than specified, your results may not be valid.

3. Activate your kit.

You will do this at color.com/covid/activate. Use the email address and password that you used to set up your account when you claimed your kit. You must activate your kit, collect your sample, and return your kit to a FedEx drop box on the same day that you take the test.

Fed-Ex does not accept samples on Saturday or Sunday, so make sure to take your test before the last pick-up time on a weekday.

Because of return shipping limitations, it’s very important to know where your local FedEx drop box is and what the latest pickup time is on the day that you will activate. Find information about locations and pickup hours at color.com/fedex-dropbox.

4. Get your results.

Most people will receive results within 48 hours after their sample arrives at the lab, but this may vary. Color will text and email you when your results are ready.

Your kit will be shipped to you via FedEx. You will receive a tracking number and expected delivery date. Tracking information may not be available for 24 hours. The kit includes everything that you need to collect your sample and return the kit.

COVID tests kits are provided at no cost to you.

We’ll send you an email and text when it’s time to activate your kit. Do not activate your kit or collect your sample before this time, and remember to activate, collect your sample, and return your kit on the same day.


We ask you to activate between 72 and 48 hours from when you need your results because Color must receive your kit in the lab 48 hours before you need your results to report your results on time.


Please check the FedEx drop box hours in your location to ensure your kit ships on the same day as activation.

If the date when you need your results changes, you can update it on color.com. Log in at color.com and navigate to your dashboard. You’ll see a link to change your results date. You can do this any time before you activate your kit.
