News Local Health Unit Closes For Lunch SHARE ON: Kaitlin Livingston, contributor, Friday, Jul. 8th, 2016 Photo credit: supplied The Haliburton-Kawartha-Pine Ridge District Health Unit will now be closed for its lunch hour. This comes after recent staffing changes. Officials say they will be closed each weekday between 1:00pm to 2:00pm. They say residents can still drop well water samples off at the health unit during this time, because there will be a cooler and instructions outside the office door. The closure will remain in effect throughout the summer, but will be re-evaluated in the fall.
