Mayo Chapel at St. Mary's in Rochester open during COVID-19?

Anyone know if the Chapel in St Mary’s hospital is open to the public during Covid. That is my favorite go to place to be close to God. Loved the Peace Garden at St Mary’s also but that’s been closed for a while, although when at Mayo in May, it looked like the construction was pretty much done. Loved that place, hopefully they will rebuild it to its previous glory. Will be at Mayo for a month starting on 9/6.

Greetings from a Mayo Clinic/Saint Marys (furloughed) volunteer.
I just spoke to the Chaplain's office at Saint Mary's and yes, the chapel is open to individuals for prayer, but they are not holding scheduled services due to the pandemic. Regarding your question about the Peace Garden, Sister Lauren (Saint Marys archivist) just told me "yes, we do have plans to restore it." She did not know when that restoration will start, but based on what I know about Mayo Clinic construction here in Rochester, I suspect we'll see work starting on that project very soon. Cheers!
