LOGAN LAKE - A temporary doctor shortage will mean the emergency room at Logan Lake Health Centre will be closed Tuesday Oct. 15.

The emergency department is usually open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to noon. The rest of the hospital will remain open with other services available as usual.

During the hours the Emergency Department is closed, residents should take note of the following:

In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
-  For non-urgent matters, residents may wish to use the emergency departments or walk-in clinics in Kamloops or Merritt.
-  If individuals are unsure about what services they require, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1.
-  The toll-free line provides 24-hour, confidential health information and advice from a registered nurse.
