The Short Baseline Neutrino program at Fermilab will address one of the most urgent question in the neutrino physics scenario, namely the possible existence of a sterile neutrino at 1 eV mass scale, as suggested by past experimental anomalies. The experiment will search both $\nu_e$ appearance and $\nu_\mu$ disappearance with the Booster Neutrino Beam. After a significant overhaul at CERN, the Short Baseline Neutrino Far Detector, ICARUS T600, was installed at Fermilab. The detector has started operations in summer 2020 and its commissioning was completed in May 2022, collecting the first neutrino events from the Booster Neutrino Beam and the Neutrinos at the Main Injector off-axis beam. In this paper the ICARUS status and plans for data analysis are addressed as well as the ongoing developments of the analysis tools needed to fulfill its physics program.
