Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said healthcare providers in her state can resume non-urgent medical and dental procedures in next month

Brown made her announcement on Thursday. It was detailed in a report by The Hill. She said the non-urgent procedures can be performed as long as providers can show they have met requirements for COVID-19 safety.

“As anyone waiting for an elective surgery knows, ‘non-urgent’ does not mean ‘minor,' ” Brown said. “This is incredibly important medical care that we would not have told providers to delay if the threat of COVID-19 had not made it necessary

Brown had ordered the procedures halted during the coronavirus outbreak.

“Lifting this order will allow our healthcare system to get up and running again, with appropriate safeguards in place, so that Oregonians can get healthcare treatment without delay,” she said.

Her remarks came a day after California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced plans to allow hospitals and health systems in his state to resume delayed medical care such as heart valve replacements and angioplasty, which were deferred because of COVID-19.
