Elective surgeries back on the table

Monday marked the first day for the procedures after they were banned by Governor Tim Walz


Intensive care./// today marks the first day minnesota healthcare providers can perform elective surgeries after the governor banned such procedures to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Cutting elective surgeries has taken a financial toll on our local hospitals..

Including mayo clini?

Who has had to cut pay and hours for over 3?

Thousand employees.

In the meantime..

Mayo has developed and increased coronavirus testing capabilities?

Tracked supplies for personal protective equipment?

And put screening processes in place.

But one resident acknowledges while elective surgeries might boost the economy?

She isn't enthusiastic about the timing.

"i don't think the city is quite ready for elective surgeries to reopen just because we haven't seen a huge decrease in coronavirus."

Mayo clinic says the projected coronavirus peak for its minnesota sites has lessened and the plateau is looking more positive./// governor kim reynolds
