@leann100 May I also welcome you, Yes Mayo Phoenix is my transplant center and I'm up there on a regular basis. I was up there last Wednesday for my IVIG treatment and everything went very smooth. Now unless something has changed this past week caregivers up to 2 were allowed in with there Patient as long as they had an appointment.
The check in went real easy at the front door and they are practicing social distancing by only allowing sitting every few chairs. But there was very few people I saw and keeping my distance was not a problem.
The infusion center is on the 7th floor and it was not super busy, I even had a private room which usually I'm in a chair.
But just in case things have changed there is a nice outdoor area and walking trail on the campus. There is a mall just 2 miles away but I'm not sure if anything is open. The cafeteria was open for meals again unless things have changed. Most restaurants in the area are doing take out only but I did have some breakfast at a denney's where I called a phone number and the food came out to me in the car.
If you have any other questions please ask. I'm actually going up tomorrow too, they need me to give some labs they missed last week.

Have a blessed Day
Dana

@danab, that's great first-hand information! Thank you.
It's amazing how quickly things are changing, so I'm glad you added "unless things have changed".

One thing that changed as of today, March 26 is "No visitors will be allowed in the hospital setting, emergency department or outpatient clinics on the Mayo Clinic Arizona campus." Details are constantly update here: https://www.mayoclinic.org/covid-19/arizona

Here is information for all Mayo locations:
