The closure will commence Monday, July 18 at 8:00 a.m. and last until Monday, July 25 at 8:00 a.m. due to what Eastern Health describes as human resource challenges.


During that time anyone with a medical emergency who requires an ambulance should call 911 and those who feel they have a serious or urgent medical problem should proceed to the nearest open emergency department in Carbonear, Placentia or St. John’s.
