An expansion that was underway at Mayo Clinic in Rochester has been "paused" due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayo Clinic announced Monday.

The plans for the 11-floor expansion of the Gonda Building — which included four floors for new clinical space and seven floors for hotel space — was set to be completed by the end of 2022 but will now likely be delayed.

Mayo Clinic said it "remains fully committed to developing and implementing plans that support the facility needs of patients for years to come, including facility expansion opportunities with Pontiac Land Group and other developers."

It's unclear when the project may start back up or how long it could delay its completion.
