Mayo Clinic expands in-person care
May 13, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and clinics were forced to postpone nonessential appointments and surgeries in March and April. Thanks to social distancing and executive stay-at-home orders which helped flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak, Mayo Clinic is prepared now, not only to meet the projected needs of COVID-19 patients, but safely treat patients whose care was delayed, and to welcome new patients as well.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Conor Loftus, chair of outpatient practice at Mayo Clinic, explains how Mayo Clinic is protecting patients and staff by using enhanced screening, testing, cleaning and masking protocols.
