Surgeries, other care set to resume in Minnesota


Alex Kormann – Star Tribune

A health care worker takes the temperature of a visitor to Essentia Health who was crossing over a skywalk bridge from the adjoining parking deck in Duluth.

Gov. Tim Walz appears set to allow medical providers to resume elective surgeries and procedures, which had been temporarily prohibited so the state could conserve masks, gowns and other medical resources for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Urged by financially struggling medical providers, and concerned by tales of sick patients getting sicker, Walz said he would likely act on Tuesday and amend his emergency order so that surgeons, dentists and other providers could resume work.
