Island Health has announced the Ladysmith Community Health Centre is closed on Friday due to staff illness.
In a Facebook post, Island Health said the closure is due to short notice sick calls, and they are working to find staffing in an attempt to reopen the clinic.
Anyone in need of urgent care is advised to attend the Chemainus Health Care Centre, which is open until 8 p.m., call 911, or go to the nearest emergency department.
People can also call 811 to speak with a reistered nurse if they are uncertain their medical issue requires a visit to an emergency department.
