For the most up to date information or if you have any questions about the Coronavirus or COVID-19, please go to our website:
To allow our health care providers to focus on the care of our patients, we are directing general questions about things such as social gatherings, travel plans, and regular daily activity to these websites:
If you are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms: fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and haven’t traveled outside of the state of Minnesota, you do not need to be screened for COVID-19.
If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms: fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and have traveled outside of the state of Minnesota, or are concerned you have been infected, we have set up a COVID-19 hotline in which a Mankato Clinic nurse will guide you through the COVID-19 screening process. The hotline phone number is 507-389-8548.
FOR ALL OB/GYN, Fertility, Oncology, and Infusion Patients: To reduce possible exposure to respiratory viruses, patients that have upcoming appointments in these departments in the upcoming weeks should bypass Central Registration and go directly to the department. If you have updates to your insurance or demographic information, please give the information to staff in the department.
Beginning Monday, March 16th, Mankato Clinic will be operating a drive-thru method for Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing. Patients who are concerned they are infected with COVID-19 need to call Mankato Clinic’s COVID-19 hotline at 507-389-8548 BEFORE coming to the clinic. A nurse will complete a phone screening to determine if a lab test is needed for additional screening. If testing criteria is met, the nurse will direct patient to the drive-thru screening location.
IMPORTANT: Patients cannot use the drive-thru screening method unless they call the hotline first, complete a phone screening and are instructed to go to the drive-thru location.
Our Mankato Clinic health care providers and staff are people you know and trust who live right in your communities. Our employees’ health and safety are also of utmost concern and the Mankato Clinic Human Resources Department has developed a flexible sick leave policy so our staff are encouraged to and can stay home when they are sick. We have also implemented a staff travel policy in keeping with the CDC’s Travel Health Notices.
Please know that we remain committed to you and your well-being and are doing our part to champion the health of everyone in our region.
Thank you for trusting your care to Mankato Clinic,
Dr. Andrew Lundquist
Chief Medical Officer
Mankato Clinic
