Some surgeries and procedures are resuming at Bluewater Health now that COVID-19 hospitalizations are decreasing and capacity is returning to normal.

The hospital took in 21 patients in recent weeks needing treatment for the disease from London and the Greater Toronto Area.

Many surgeries were paused, but last week Ontario lifted its directive restricting elective and non-urgent surgeries and procedures and the local hospital began rescheduling appointments.

Patients will be notified of openings, and those already waiting for surgery will hear directly from their physician’s office, the hospital said.
