The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the emergency department at the South Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre in Parrsboro will be closed during the day on Saturday.

The province says the ER will be shut down from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. because no physician coverage is available.

The department will be open overnight, with coverage provided by the paramedic/registered nurse/oversight physician team.

Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should call 911.
