NEBH has been preparing diligently for COVID-19 since the outbreak began in January and we are following guidance from our local, state, and federal governments.
No elective surgery will take place at NEBH from March 17, 2020 until at least March 31, 2020. This decision was made in response to Governor Charlie Baker’s orders to cancel elective procedures for two weeks. Any surgery scheduled during that time will be rescheduled.
What can you do to prepare?
Although it is difficult to predict how the COVID-19 outbreak will unfold in the U.S., there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself and others.
This is an understandably concerning time as public health officials work to stop its spread. We encourage you to keep up-to-date with the CDC’s recommendations and to contact us with any questions or concerns. NEBH is answering the call from public health officials to do what we can to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and help to end this epidemic. Once the pandemic is controlled and it is deemed safe to do so, we will resume our specialized orthopedic care.
