The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has also released a new surgical resource document, "Local Resumption of Elective Surgery Guidance," as a guide for health care facilities preparing to resume elective surgery once the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has peaked in their area. I hope that you and your healthcare facilities will find this useful.
Please stay well and THANK YOU for your perseverance and dedication to your patients.

Dear Member of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons:
On May 21, 2020 the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) hosted a 1 hour webinar with hospital leaders from around the state discussing their approach on the topic of "Re-starting Surgery in Massachusetts".

I encourage you and your colleagues to listen to the recording of this webinar and take advantage of this timely and unique information.
What follows was the content of this webinar:
