Mayo Clinic Health System COVID hospitalizations upticking

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Mayo Clinic Health System officials tell News 8 Now its COVID hospitalizations are continuing to rise.

But a spokesman will not say how many patients are hospitalized with COVID-19, only that Mayo in La Crosse has not had to open its COVID-19 wing.

The spokesman says if a COVID patient is in need of critical care that La Crosse can’t provide, the patient is sent to Rochester.
