    Using "circumstances" to express the same meaning

    Whatever happens, don't let anyone into the building without a proper identity.

    ....... should you let anyone into the building without proper identity.

    I don't know how to use the word "circumstances" in the blank! Any clue?
    Thank you.

    Under no circumstances should you let anyone into the building without proper identity.

    I agree with "under no circumstances" for the blank. I would change "without a proper identity/without proper identity" to "without proper identification".

    ... or "without proper ID".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
