Hi all: I see that TJC has removed its statement on organizations reopening. (https://www.jointcommission.org/-/media/tjc/documents/covid19/removal-of-position-statement.pdf). I'm asking them about how this might impact surveys. But just curious -- have hospitals or other organizations tried to reopen elective surgeries and other services, but had to shut them back down as COVID cases rise again? I will be writing an article about this for Inside Accreditation & Quality, and I'm wondering what its like out there. Thank you.
