Please use a laptop, desktop, or tablet with a Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser for the best viewing. Compatibility issues with Firefox and Safari have been reported. You will not be able to see the video on a smartphone.

If you have any issues accessing the training, please contact Kaleema Caesar in the Office of Human Resources at

You will receive an email from John Flaherty approving your campus visit. You must present a copy of this email when entering the building.

3. Take the wellness check survey through Everbridge’s health screening app before you come to campus each day. 

The survey involves five short questions. Use this guide for instructions on accessing and using the app.

Based on the answers provided, you will receive confirmation within the app or in your email that clears you to enter the college or office. Those not cleared to enter will be given additional guidance on what they should do next. Please also review these FAQs if you have a question.

CUNY Research Foundation staff must also follow the three steps outlined above.

If you do not have access to CUNYfirst, then you may use Everbridge’s health screening app for visitors. Follow the instructions on the visitor’s guide. In order to use the visitor’s version of the Everbridge health screening app, you need to provide your first and last names as well as your email address to Kaleema Caesar at
