Ohio is confident enough that the number of new cases has stabilized enough to allow for hospitals to resume performing medical procedures that were initially deemed non-essential. Governor Mike DeWine says there is sufficient hospital capacity and PPE to ease up on the prohibition of elective surgeries.
