Can we remove monitors for our origins to prevent health based routing in the load balancer?

We want to use the load balancer only for rule based routing not for acutally sending the same requests to different origins. We had an issue a few days ago where one of the origins was not healthy anymore and requests that were supposed to go to the unhealthy origin were routed to the healthy one that could not handle them.

We would like to prevent the load balancer from chosing the origin based on the health of a origin. We have two origins and have monitors configured. Can we just remove or delete the monitors? Will the load balancer still send traffic to the origins or will they become “unhealthy”?
