In Person Appointments

Before your appointment:

Download the CVKey App to a mobile device and set up your profile. (Required for entry into building)

  • The CVKey app asks asks questions regarding your current state of health and your travel history.  If your answers meet the required health status, the app will generate a QR code for you to scan at building entrances.
  • No personal health data is shared or stored outside the mobile device.  The only information the QR code provides when scanned is a simple yes or no indication of whether your health assessment meets the criteria to enter the building that day. Learn More

*If you do not wish to use the CVKey App, you can schedule an online appointment.
