Mayo Clinic said in statement Friday that it supports the shelter-in-place orders issued by Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as similar orders issued across the country, if issued with appropriate exceptions. 

"Our hope is that comprehensive, short-term actions taken now will slow the spread of the disease," the statement said. 

Patients are still allowed to travel state-to-state to seek care, as well as travel within their own state. 

Emergency orders also are providing broad exemptions for health care workers to continue travel to work. 

"Mayo Clinic is well-prepared and ready to treat patients with COVID-19 across the organization, while at the same time actively helping the world respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic," it stated.
