3 17 Hospital Transitioning CW
As Amarillo moves down in Covid-!9 status from Code Orange to Code yellow, hospitals in the city are transitioning back to normal status.
B S A, Northwest Texas Healthcare and the Veterans Hospital officials say the vaccine is the game-changer.
Meanwhile, the hospitals are now transitioning from primarily COVID-19 activities to normal operations.
Many of the travel nurses that were here to help with the high numbers of COVID-19 patients are leaving.
The hospitals are now using contract nurses to fill gaps as some of the local nurses have decided to leave for various reasons.
The city also says they’re only holding their COVID-19 conference every other week. However, this does not include the daily report which will continue as normal.
