It is set to close this afternoon, Tuesday, May 23rd at 5pm and reopen tomorrow morning at 7am.
Anyone requiring immediate medical attention should call 911.
Paramedics will remain available and will re-route to the nearest available ER to ensure they have continued access to the emergency medical services they need.

They advise to check with the Emergency Department listed before visiting to ensure they are operating at regular hours.
