The Coast Guard's preferred videoconferencing tool is CVR Teams. If you have tried using CVR Teams and it does not meet your needs you may request Zoom for Government. Starting 1 May 2020, all external third party applications (e.g. Zoom) are prohibited for use to conduct Coast Guard business except for telemedicine capabilities (IAW ALCOAST 096/20) or with an approved Special Use Information Technology (SUIT) request for "Zoom for Government".
