Northern Health Connections to run modified schedule in August

Northern Health Connections, a program that offers healthcare travel for clients in need of services outside of their community, will be running a modified schedule for the month of August.

The change was implemented to allow for routine maintenance on vehicles and because of a low amount of riders throughout the summer.

The modified schedule will include a two week break starting on August 9 and wrapping up on August 23. The call centre will remain open during this time period, though.

Below is a list of changes to routes in the area:
