Mayo Clinic expands in-person care on all campuses

Mayo Clinic will expand in-person care on all of its campuses as COVID-19 executive orders are lifted for elective procedures by governors in Arizona, Florida, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

“Our patients’ health and safety is always our top priority,” says Amy Williams, M.D. (I ’87, NEPH ’90), Mayo Clinic Executive Dean for Practice. “We have taken several extra precautions to safely offer in-person care.”

Mayo Clinic has implemented enhanced cleaning, masking, testing and screening protocols for staff and patients. In addition, due to social distancing and the executive orders, our communities have experienced a flattening of the curve with a plateau of cases expected through the remainder of the year.

“Based on this, Mayo Clinic can begin seeing patients whose care was deferred and seeing new patients who need access to Mayo Clinic care,” says Dr. Williams.

You can join Dr. Williams here for a virtual walking tour of Mayo Clinic’s Rochester facilities where she demonstrates why it’s safe to come to Mayo Clinic. For more information, refer to the appointments page here.
