 Our office will remained closed.  Please do not arrive before 10 minutes before your test.  You will need to knock on the door when it is time for your test.  If you have someone come with you they will need to remain in the hall, there are benches under the window for waiting.

 I’m proctoring 1 test at a time.  We require that the person coming to take the test wears a mask. Staff will also be wearing a mask. Masks are not simply for self-protection, they help avoid spreading anything to others and are a sign of respect and concern for others. Without a mask you cannot take the test. We will be practicing social distancing while you are there to test.

If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches and chills, or decreased sense of smell or taste, you will need to re-book your appointment.
