As Mayo Clinic continues to monitor our communities for the spread of COVID-19, updates have been made to visitor restrictions at all Mayo Clinic sites.
The ongoing safety of patients, staff and the community remains Mayo Clinic’s primary focus. To support the best safety for patients and staff, Mayo Clinic will limit the number of visitors on its campuses. Also, all visitors must be masked and agree to support social distancing while in our facilities.
