Overnight closures of highway 1 on the Malahat for the next several days have prompted the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to limit the route to essential travel only.
Currently, there are no major disruptions to Island Health’s health-care services. If this changes, people with booked appointments for medical care will be contacted to reschedule. More information will be shared if the situation changes.
People with essential medical appointments that require a trip over the Malahat should monitor travel advisories and plan for extra travel time in the event there are delays as a result of road repair work.
Island Health will work with patients to reschedule non-urgent appointments if that is their preference.
