On June 2, 2020, Ohio Governor DeWine announced that health care providers may resume all surgeries and procedures that had previously been delayed. 

In doing so, health care providers must:

  1. maintain adequate inventories of PPE, supplies, equipment and medicine.
  2. create a plan for conservation and monitoring use of PPE, other supplies and equipment that could include decontamination and reuse.
  3. maintain a reliable supply chain to support their non-COVID-19 cases and respond to an unexpected surge in COVID-19 cases, if needed.
  4. define processes for timely COVID-19 testing of patients and staff.
  5. continue to use telehealth whenever possible. 

Bricker’s health care team will prepare a comprehensive analysis with an order or written guidance when it is released.
