RSIP COVID-19 Response

​​​​​​​​​​​​


​NOTICE AS OF 5/27/2022: The RSIP monitors the COVID-19 Community Levels (CCL) published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on a weekly basis. If the CCL for a specific county is listed as “Low” or “Medium”, in-home appointments can be conducted in that county. If the CCL for a specific county is listed as “High”, the RSIP will request verbal confirmation from the homeowners that they will allow appointments or work to proceed in their homes. ​

At the Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSIP or Program), the safety of our Program particip​ants, as well our staff and colleagues, is our top priority. Under the guidance of the Chicago D​epartment of Aviation (CDA) , the RSIP has developed a protocol of procedures for safely conducting in-home appointments and construction. The CDA greatly appreciates your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation. 

The Protocol For Conducting Appointments in Homes (COVID-19) establishes procedures that allow appointments to be conducted in homes, or work to be performed in homes, in a safe manner to help protect participants of the program and to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. All RSIP staff entering your home will be required to wear a face covering. We ask that all persons in the home wear a face covering while interacting with RSIP staff or if they cannot maintain a six foot social distance from any person within the home. The protocol document is made available to homeowners when scheduling appointments and at the beginning of appointments in the home.​

RSIP Drop Box 

An RSIP Drop Box is installed near each airport so that you can conveniently ​submit any necessary pap​erwork to us without the need for face-to-face contact. Participants may deposit any Program related paperwork in one of two RSIP Drop Boxes. The O'Hare drop box is located next to the main entrance of the Aviation Administration Building (O’Hare Building 804), at 10510 W. Zemke​ Road, Chicago, IL 60666, immediately to the left of the entry doors. The Midway drop box is located inside the entry vestibule doors of the Midway Airport Maintenance Complex (AMC) at 6201 ​S. Laramie Avenue, Chicago, IL 60638. Proceed to the guard post and inform the security officer that you are dropping off paperwork for the RSIP at the AMC.

Please place paperwork in one of the secure ​drop boxes at any hour of the day or night. If you would prefer to have your paperwork picked up at your home, please call the Program Office to arrange for pick up so that you do not have to drive to one of the RSIP Drop Boxes. If you elect to have paperwork picked up at your home, our representative will be wearing a photographic identification card and a face covering over the mouth and nose.
