Health Kiosk

The Health Kiosk has been removed from public use due to it being a potential contamination spot.

  • Additional health information is available in print at the station for anyone to take.
  • Printing is not enabled at this station. We recommend you take photos of anything you'd like to keep, or take notes with the pencils and paper at the station.
