**Updated** Emergency department closures in Pugwash, Parrsboro, and Tatamagouche

**Updated at 9:40 a.m.**

Emergency department closures during daytime hours have been announced for Tatamagouche, Pugwash, and Parrsboro. 

The Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital in Tatmagouche will be closed Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says there has been a change to the schedule for the emergency department closures at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Pugwash. 

The ER will now be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. 

The South Cumberland CEC emergency department in Parrsboro will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday, and next Friday.  

The authority had previously announced the ER would be shut down Friday in Parrsboro for 12 hours until 8:30 p.m. 

Officials say the closures are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage will be available as usual at each location.
