Battling the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be challenging, especially for health care workers across all levels of patient care.

"People came together in adversity, responded and synergized to create a situation where we not only survived, but thrived within this challenging environment," says Dr. Conor Loftus, chair of Mayo Clinic outpatient practice.

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Loftus talks more about that synergy, how health care teams were innovative and how telemedicine is meeting the needs of patients.

For the safety of its patients, staff and visitors, Mayo Clinic has strict masking policies in place. Anyone shown without a mask was recorded prior to COVID-19 or in an area not designated for patient care, where social distancing and other safety protocols were followed.
