Coronavirus Update

We at theMART are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and following all guidance and mandates issued by the CDC, and state and local authorities.

As outlined in the Restore Illinois plan, during Phase 4, employees of “non-essential” businesses are allowed to return to work while following Illinois Department of Public Health approved safety guidance. See for more information.

The building will continue following these procedures:

  • Stay home if you are sick and have any symptoms of the virus or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with the virus.
  • Masks must be worn when entering and exiting theMART and while in all common areas; including but not limited to, lobbies, elevators, stairways, hallways, washrooms, and the food hall.
  • Social distancing is required. We ask that you practice this in common areas on the 1st & 2nd floors, as well as on showroom floors.
  • Appointments are recommended, as not all businesses are operating with regular hours. Please call your destination before you come to theMART.
  • Common areas will not initially allow for gatherings.
  • Food service and retailers will resume operations at the appropriate level on the designated dates dictated by state and local requirements. Common areas will offer limited seating.
  • Cleaning will continue at an enhanced and aggressive schedule in all common areas of the building using approved products and protocols from public health agencies.
  • Hand sanitizer stands have been installed at all entrances and elevator banks on the 1st & 2nd floor.
  • Elevators will resume normal service. New capacities per cab will be noted in each elevator.
