A bomb threat has reportedly been made against Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops and police are on scene in response to investigate.
Interior Health has not released a statement, but has confirmed to at least one media outlet that the hospital has declared a code black for a potential bomb and the hospital is on lockdown. The public is asked to refrain from visiting the hospital as of 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
Update: Command center being setup in ER. No further updates as to whether false alarm or not. Hospital locked down (allegedly).
