At the guidance of the CDC and State and County officials, the City will no longer require facial coverings while at City facilities, with some exceptions as required by Federal order. The City still recommends and encourages that all employees, residents, businesses, and visitors continue to follow all preventative measures to help protect our community. This includes continuing to take personal responsibility by wearing a facial covering, washing your hands often, practicing a safe social distance, and taking extra precautions when in group settings.

The vaccine is our best shot at recovery and a return to complete normalcy. We strongly encourage everyone who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated. Additional details on vaccine eligibility and locations are available at sibfl.net/vaccines.
