A local emergency department will be closed for eight days.
Officials at St. Anne Centre in Arichat say their ER will shut down at 7 p.m. Saturday; it won’t re-open until Apr. 15 at 7 p.m.
Health officials say the reason for the closure is physician unavailability.
You’re asked to go to the nearest open ER or call 911 in the case of an emergency; you can call 811 for non-emergency health advice from a registered nurse.
