70s movie in which a virus needs to contained in a small town.

After a deadly virus gets out in a small town in the US, a group of 4 scientists are tasked with finding out how to stop it.

They are sent to a secret facility which is 4 levels, with each level more safety procedures are required. One is given a key to wear around thier neck at all times, i guess to stop the facility from self desructing in a worst case scenario.

Most of the movie is set inside the facility.
