With the end of the first wave, hospitals are rolling back COVID routines to accommodate much-needed consultations and surgeries. But that might mean more wait time in your hospital lobby. And earlier today the DHS ask patients to bear with hospitals.

Dr. Marvin Manzanero, Director Of Health Service
"Hospitals were asked to go back to their new routine as of today, so that will start to happen in terms of trying to plan surgeries and your consultation for chronic patients, so that they will be spaced out throughout the day. We will ask that you bear with us, because not everybody will be seen in the morning. We are asking hospitals to space out patients throughout the day, so that up to late afternoon you can have patients that are coming in on a routine basis as we go into a new norm."
