LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - As the pandemic continues, some workers are still looking for ways to work in the office, but away from large groups of people.
Mayo Clinic Health System created a brand new drop-in space for remote workers on the fifth floor of the Professional Arts Building on their La Crosse campus. Employees can use private rooms, meeting spaces, and workstations.
"So, we took an old floor that was all cut-up over the years into various offices and cubicles and we opened it up, brought in all this natural light, brought in an environment where it is easy for people to engage in a safe, socially distanced manner. I think people are really going to love the fact that they can now re-engage with their colleagues back here on our La Crosse campus," said Eric Erickson, Vice Chair of Administration, Southwest Wisconsin Region, Mayo Clinic Health System.
Masks and social distancing is required for staff that use the drop-in center.
