Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA)

The province says the Eastern Shore Memorial Hospital's emergency department will be closed for a 24-hour period Monday and Tuesday.

A release says the ER will close at 8:00 a.m. on Monday and remain closed until 8:00 a.m. Tuesday.

The closure is due to a lack of physician coverage.

Anyone with a medical emergency should call 911, while non-emergency health advice can be obtained from a registered nurse by calling 811.
