The emergency order is intended to increase hospital capacity in New York and will last until at least Jan. 15, when it will be reassessed.

According to a copy of the order, the state will utilize the “surge and flex system,” which allows the Department of Health to limit non-essential and non-urgent hospital procedures in situations where a hospital has less than 10% staffed bed capacity.
