Yes, you can.
Absolutely as long as your local/state pandemic precautions are heeded. (However, MRI is not a good test for occipital neuralgia, unless you are trying to rule out other causes).
Depends on the edicts of your State Governor and MRI provider. There should be minimal danger if you are masked and maintain distancing and hand washing before and after.
