**Updated at 11:05 a.m. on January 26th**

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

The South Cumberland CEC in Parrsboro will be shut down Friday and Saturday, as well as Monday through Wednesday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The ER at the All Saints Springhill CEC will be closed Friday and next Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says that additional physician coverage has, however, been secured for the emergency department at North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre in Pugwash 

The ER will now be closed Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says these closures are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage will be available as usual.
