Pandemic Waiting room

This was the waiting room at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on March 20th, 2020. The last time I saw this waiting room was 8 months ago and it was crowded with people in every seat and most people were talking and interacting with each other. It was such an odd feeling to see the waiting room with signs on random seats and social distancing with very few people in the room. The reality of the pandemic was impressed upon me when I walked into and viewed this waiting room.
