In order to protect the health of our staff and guests, we ask that you please complete a health screening form each day before entering our offices. This form will be sent to you the evening of Wednesday October 5th and the evening of Thursday October 6th.
When completing the questionnaire, the email that you provide will be used strictly to send you an affirmation that the completed form has been received and that you are cleared to enter the premises. Please save that email as you will be asked to show it to security or reception upon arrival each day.
Additionally, masks must be worn at all times, unless actively eating or drinking.
