ER closures announced at several locations

The Nova Scotia Health Authority has announced several emergency department closures in the region over the next week. 

In Parrsboro, the ER at the South Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

The emergency department at the All Saints Springhill CEC will be closed Sunday through Tuesday and again on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

In Pugwash, the ER at the North Cumberland CEC will be shut down from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. 

It will also be closed four hours on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says these closures are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage at each location will be available as usual.
