Most hospitals across Illinois are now able to offer elective procedures. Taylorville Memorial Hospital CEO Kim Bourne says they’re doing almost everything they were doing before COVID-19, but some new steps have been put into place to protect patients and staff.

There are some procedures though that do not require a negative COVID-19 test.
Taylorville Memorial Hospital CEO Kim Bourne was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
