Emergency department closures during daytime hours have been announced at three locations in our area. 

In Pugwash, the ER at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) will be shut down from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through to Wednesday. 

The South Cumberland CEC in Parrsboro will be closed from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m Friday. 

The ER will also be closed at this location on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The emergency department at All Saints Springhill CEC will be shut down from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
