Here is a look around the Queen City, with many of the usually bustling parts of town nearly deserted.
The Albert St. Bridge is usually packed ahead of rush hour, but just a few cars trickled past the Legislative Building on Tuesday afternoon.
Scarth St. and Dewdney Ave. are two of the restaurant and entertainment hubs of Regina, but they were quiet on Tuesday afternoon with most businesses closed. Restaurants, bars and cafes are among the list of businesses that were shut down by the province on March 20.
