Visitors will also need to check out of the SafeEntry system when they leave the building. The enhanced precautionary measures are to augment contact tracing capabilities. The QR codes for both forms will be available at the entrance/ exit of the FJC.
2. All visitors are also required to undergo temperature screening at the entrance before entering the building.
