COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced health care providers may resume all surgeries and procedures that were previously delayed due to COVID-19. DeWine made this announcement during Tuesday’s press briefing.
“We want to make sure that they maintain adequate inventories of PPE, supplies, equipment and medicine, create a plan for conservation monitoring use of PPE and other supplies and equipment, maintain a reliable supply chain to support non COVID-19 cases and to respond to an unexpected surge in COVID-19 cases if needed and to find processes for timely COVID-19 testing for patients and staff,” DeWine said.
Gov. DeWine also encouraged health care providers to continue to use TeleHealth whenever possible.
