ER closure in Pugwash on Thursday

The emergency department at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Pugwash will be closed on Thursday. 

The 12-hour closure runs until 8 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the closure is due to a lack of physician coverage.

Overnight coverage from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. will be available as usual.
