Nevada doctors and dentists may soon resume medical and dental procedures that are considered necessary but were delayed because of the coronavirus.

Gov. Steve Sisolak released a statement Tuesday night announcing that the Nevada Hospital Association will phase-in procedures while trying to minimize the risk of transmitting the coronavirus to patients and healthcare workers and maintain enough capacity in hospitals to handle any increase in COVID-19 cases.

Sisolak’s office said the state Department of Health and Human Services will release a memo to dentists describing a way to phase in dental services that help with acute infections or the progression of chronic disease.
