Elective surgeries are returning in Rochester, N.Y., almost a month after such procedures were allowed to resume in some areas of the state, Spectrum Local News reported Feb. 22.

Surgery Center at Sawgrass and University of Rochester Medical Center each said they resumed elective surgical procedures last week. 

The surgery center has returned to full strength with a normal operating schedule.
