*Screenings Required for Access to City Facilities

  • All visitors and employees are required to undergo a screening at the SIB Government Center prior to entering any City facility. Screenings will take place on the first floor of the Government Center parking garage near the west entrance of the Government Center and library book drop. The screening consists of a series of questions and a contactless temperature check. You will receive a wristband upon completing the screening.
  • Visitors should arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete the screening.  After completing the screening in the parking garage, you will need to check-in and obtain a visitor badge on the first floor inside the Government Center near the elevators. Any visitor that does not check-in will be asked to leave immediately. Learn more at sibfl.net/screenings.
