Richmond-based OrthoVirginia will resume performing elective surgical procedures May 1, in accordance with Gov. Ralph Northam's recent guidance.

The practice will begin rescheduling patients who had their procedures canceled or postponed to perform their surgeries first, before tackling the remainder of the backlog.

OrthoVirginia has implemented a series of enhanced policies and procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The practice will screen all patients, visitors and employees for symptoms of COVID-19; use social distancing measures whenever possible; limit visitors to one per patient; and require everyone who comes into contact with another person to wear a mask.
