This story will be updated.
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Northern Light A.R. Gould Hospital closed its emergency department to visitors Saturday evening, and announced it would remain closed at least until Monday, when the hospital plans to reevaluate the situation.
The emergency department is still accepting patients, though they will have to come alone. Pediatric patients or patients with special needs can still be accompanied.
A Saturday Facebook post said that the decision had been made out of “an abundance of caution,” with no further explanation. The hospital has not released any more information since, and hospital representatives were not reachable for comment on Sunday morning.
