Mayo Clinic joins with local communities, states, the nation and the world to lead the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. To honor those who are working tirelessly, and as a sign of support and solidarity, the Plummer Building in Rochester, Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona, and the sign at the main entrance to Mayo Clinic in Florida will be lighted in "Mayo blue." The buildings will be lighted, beginning at dusk on Monday, March 23.

"This is a visible show of support and a reminder that we are all in this together," says Halena Gazelka, M.D., medical director for Mayo Clinic Public Affairs. "At times like this, we come together as a Mayo Clinic family and nation to support our staff, patients, communities, local businesses and all of those who are battling COVID-19."

The lighting will continue for the foreseeable future as an ongoing show of support and a sign that Mayo's highest priority is to keep its staff, patients and community strong and safe. It is also a reminder to everyone to do what they can to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
