COVID-19: Mayo Clinic is Expanding its ICU Capacity in Rochester


900 Mayo Clinic staffers diagnosed with coronavirus over last two weeks

William says there are now about 1500 Mayo Clinic employees in the midwest absent from work due to COVID reasons, which could include being infected, having a family member infected, caring for an ill family member, and having close contact with an infected person. In the midwest, the Mayo Clinic System consists of hospitals, clinics, and other facilities that serve patients in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota.

Throughout the Midwest, Mayo Clinic now has about 1,500 employees with work restrictions related to either exposure to Covid-19 or diagnosis, Lockstein said.

A spokesperson for Mayo Clinic told NBC News in an email that the number - only from the nationwide medical system's Minnesota and Wisconsin locations - comprised nearly one-third of the 2,981 coronavirus cases among its Midwest staff since the start of the pandemic in March.

"Our staff are being infected mostly due to community spread (93% of staff infections), and this impacts our ability to care for patients", Kelley Luckstein wrote to CNN in a Wednesday email.

And roughly 1,500 staff members are working with restrictions related to coronavirus exposures at Mayo locations across the Midwest. The Midwestern states have been particularly hard hit by the recent round of the Govt-19 case uprising - the governor of Minnesota announced new measures this week to help control the spread and the governor of Wisconsin declared a new state of emergency.

"It shows how widely spread this is in our communities and how easy it is to get COVID-19 in the communities here in the Midwest", Amy Williams, MD, executive dean of the Mayo Clinic Practice, told reporters during a call on Tuesday. "You need space, supplies, and staff", Williams said. According to Williams, staffers are impacted the most by COVID-19 and urges Americans to continue taking extra precautions as the virus lingers.

"All of our hospitals are really stretched", Williams said. "We don't want families to be sick". We do not want families to lose loved ones. "And what we are most anxious about is staff". "We will get through this, but we need to be safe, we need to protect each other".

Parts of the health care system are already overwhelmed by the influx of patients, and other facilities are preparing for things to come.

At the time, about 50% of ICU capacity was occupied by Covid-19 patients, the system said in a statement, adding that Covid-19 patients being treated in hospital usually stay about two to three times longer than others.
