REGINA -- The City of Regina has announced the closure of most city centres and postponement of council meetings in an effort to handle COVID-19.

“The most important issue is public safety, and lessening the possibility of spreading the virus,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “We understand the hardship, but public safety and the protection of not just our city staff, but our residents is absolutely the paramount issue.”
