LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Tuesday morning, Mayo Clinic Health System staff across its Midwest hospital locations discussed the hardships of being a health professional during the pandemic.
Among those who spoke is Traci Kokke, a Registered Nurse and Mayo’s only Infectious Disease Nurse. Kokke said since March she has been on the frontlines at the COVID testing-tents at the Mayo Clinic Health System’s parking lot.
“In healthcare, we see the good, and we see the bad. That ranges from patients who have a stuffy nose to the extremes of death,” Kokke said. “I urge the public to continue to wear a mask if they are out in public. Wearing a mask is a public health measure. It has nothing to do with your rights or any other things. It is not a statement. It is purely a public health measure.”
