Lack of physician coverage forces longer ER closure in Pugwash

The Pugwash ER is closed Thursday because of a lack of physician coverage.

Originally, the health authority had announced a four-hour closure for Thursday, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., but says the North Cumberland CEC will now be closed the entire day.

The overnight coverage will be available as usual and begins at 8 p.m.
