The Huntsville Hospital E.R. may be getting some much needed new flooring but; it could make getting in and out slower.

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare says access will be closed to three patient treatment areas, which could result in longer wait times in the emergency room.

It could also mean that visitors to emergency patients could be cut back to avoid slowing down treatment even more because there are too many people in the area.

The new flooring should be down by December 4th.
