11 hours ago · Are you getting cancer treatments during COVID-19? in COVID-19

Thanks for the details Laurie! Mayo here in Florida called me yesterday regarding my appts tomorrow. Same 3 questions as usual. I asked if they are wearing masks and was told yes! FINALLY!!! Have labs, come home and have phone appt with PA and then go back for infusion. Hopefully all goes smoothly as I will be wearing my mask!

@ruttgerbay – That is great to hear Mayo Rochester requires the use of masks. Too bad Mayo Florida does not and actually asks you not to wear them unless you are sick. This knowledge is from being there 2 days (over 4 hours) with my brain radiation team. I am just praying I have not been exposed. And yes, I will be wearing a mask when I go for my labs and infusion on Thursday whether they like it or not.

Thank you Colleen for sending this! I just checked on my portal and they are still saying no masks unless you are sick! It is still worrisome that the 4 doctors and nurses I had contact with Monday & Tuesday for my brain radiation. did not wear masks. Tomorrow I go to an Orthopedic Podiatrist for an ongoing clogged sweat pore in my foot, and I will be wearing a mask. Thursdays I go back to Mayo for labs and then infusion and I plan on wearing a N90 the whole time.

Have not received my CURE subscription yet but thank you for sending this. I have my labs and infusion Thursday and to be honest, I am scared to death. As I had said previously, Mayo was not wearing masks and asking patients not to wear mask unless they were sick. This was last Monday and Tuesday when I went for brain radiation. Now that masks have been allowed by the CDC, I wonder if they will wear them. Because I have had progression, I am hesitant to cancel my infusion. I did receive a message on my portal that my PA will have a phone conversation with me instead of the office visit but that they feel I need to have the labs and infusion done on time. Not a great feeling. I plan on wearing a N90 mask and they will have to deal with it although I feel like I have already been exposed by 4 of them last week.

@merpreb – I don't have any side effects except lousy skin which could be just a combination of lifelong sun, old age and immunotherapy! I agree with what you said about people although I have a few in my neighborhood who have the attitude it won't happen to them. They get angry when I won't let my dog greet their dog and just don't really "get it". We had some severe hoarding going on here on this island but a neighbor came to my rescue today with toilet paper! It is the small things that we become so grateful for!!

@merpreb – Thanks for asking, I am doing ok! Have my labs and infusion next Thursday and plan on wearing my own mask to Mayo. My PA sent a message saying our appointment will be either video or phone. But, I will be driving back to Mayo during my visit time so I guess it will be a phone call in the call! Strange times.

Mayo (in Florida) has opened their testing to any Mayo patient. Unfortunately as of yesterday, they were not testing the doctor's or nurses who btw, were NOT wearing masks.
