Tatamagouche ER to close twice this week

People in Tatamagouche will be without daytime ER services twice this week.

The health authority says the Lillian Fraser CEC emergency department will be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. both Thursday and Friday.

A lack of physician coverage is behind the closures.

Overnight ER coverage will be in place, provided by the usual paramedic, registered nurse and oversight physician team.
