Residents can now begin to receive routine in-office medical care, according to guidance from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS). On June 8, EOHHS announced that health care providers may resume in-person elective, non-urgent procedures and services, this includes routine office visits. However, providers must remain in compliance with current public health and safety standards. While EOHHS recommends that patients no longer defer necessary care, the emphasis remains on telehealth as the preferred means of providing that care. For the full Phase 2 Reopening Plan, visit here.
