Person Vue posted health & safety requirements for their test centers including:

  1. If you exhibit symptoms upon arrival at the test center, you may be asked to reschedule your exam for another time when in full health.
  2. You must bring and wear your own face mask while at a Pearson VUE-owned test center and throughout your exam. Any surgical or cloth face mask, including a homemade face mask, is acceptable as long as your nose and mouth are fully covered. Candidates without a face mask will be denied testing services. We are unable to provide face masks to candidates.
