Smith Village COVID-19 Precautions

Current Guidelines for All Visitors

While we know how very important it is for families to spend time with their loved ones, Smith Village places the safety of residents and staff members as its highest priority.

With the number of new cases of COVID-19, escalating daily at a record- breaking rate across Illinois and high positivity rates on a steady increase in our immediate neighborhood and the City of Chicago, Smith Village is temporarily adjusting its visitor policies for residents according to the area where they live.

For independent living residents
Guests may visit in residents’ apartments. They must be screened when they enter the building and proceed directly to and from their destination.

For assisted living residents
All outdoor and indoor visits are postponed at this time.

For skilled nursing care residents
Although Smith Village may need to make a change in the very near future, families still can schedule outdoor visits only by contacting Lisa Madsen at All visitors are required to complete our pre-screening process.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please send an email to so the appropriate staff member can respond in a timely manner.

Effective November 7, 2020
