ROCHESTER, Minn. – On Monday, June 22, the city of Rochester, Olmsted County, Mayo Clinic, Destination Medical Center Economic Development Agency, Experience Rochester, and the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce launched "Rochester Ready," an initiative aimed at ensuring a safe and resilient recovery for Rochester.
Dear Mayo Clinic: Recently there has been a directive to have everyone wear masks when out in public. Although I have limited outings to essential things such as the grocery store, with certain states “opening back up,” my children are asking about playing with friends and going on more outings in general. I am a single mom with three children, ages 15 months, 4 and 14. I’m wondering whether they need to wear masks when outside, with friends or when it is appropriate.
