Health minister’s office has said that “It’s important to note that this does not mean that all health services will be available on May 27,” 

“Rather, health regulatory colleges are now in the process of developing guidance to ensure high-quality and safe clinical care that must be met before services can resume.”

Each college will also provide advice on which services can or should now be provided remotely instead of in-person.

In mid-March, the province ordered all non-essential and elective health services to close or reduce operations as COVID-19 cases increased.

The province said the order also allows hospitals to continue planning to resume scheduled surgeries.
