Structural issues and mould are behind the temporary closure of a health care facility in eastern Saskatchewan.

Staff at the Invermay Health Centre first noticed the problem earlier this month.

Testing confirms there is mould and problems with the stability of the floor.

The building is now closed to the public and all long term care residents and staff are being moved out. However, health officials say residents have places to go.

There's no word on how long repairs are expected to take.
