Officials are urging people dealing with emergency situations to call 9-1-1.

“We thank the residents of Prairie Mountain Health for their patience and understanding during this time. Please help by using the Emergency Room for the purpose it was designed during the designated hours – to address serious medical needs. Any less serious health needs should be treated through your primary care (doctor or nurse) clinic,” the health agency said on its website.

The latest restrictions and closures come as hospitals across the province struggle with staff shortages.
