South Okanagan residents and visitors will have to go elsewhere to seek acute medical care Sunday night.

Due to limited physician availability at South Okanagan General Hospital (SOGH), the emergency department (ED) will be closed from 8 p.m. Sunday to 8 a.m. Monday, the Interior Health Region is reporting.

It is encouraging residents and visitors requiring emergency care to call 9-1-1 or visit the ER at Penticton Regional Hospital.

Those unsure if they should seek emergency care can call HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1.
