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:
