New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said some elective medical treatments will be allowed to resume in some parts of the state.
"We're going to allow elective outpatient treatment, which means the number of beds will remain available," Cuomo said at a news briefing.
These procedures will only be allowed to resume in areas "without a Covid issue," Cuomo said, adding that New York City, Westchester County and other hard-hit areas will continue to cancel elective procedures.
Last month, Cuomo said canceling all non-elective surgeries across the state would free up 25-35% of hospital beds.
