— In light of the ongoing deferment of elective care appointments, Mayo Clinic Health System will temporarily suspend operations at the clinic in Lake Crystal, effective Monday, April 27, 2020

“The temporary suspension is necessary to reallocate staffing resources to other critical care needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Gerald Kowal, D.O., Mayo Clinic Health System regional vice chair of clinical practice. “In the meantime, clinic patients continue to have alternative options to seek care, including necessary clinic visits at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato, as well as virtual care options that include our 24/7 Nurse Line and Express Care Online.”

Patients should call 507-625-4031 to inquire about virtual video visits with a provider.

Patients who have upcoming clinic appointments scheduled will be notified. 

If you are showing any sign of possible COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), please call first before presenting to a health care facility. If you meet testing criteria, you will be directed to a local testing site.
