Residential Roads Snow Plow Paused

 As a result of this week’s snowfall and the anticipated snow later this week, City crews have switched to a systematic plow and temporarily paused the Residential Roads Snow Plow that started earlier this week.

 A systematic plow means crews are plowing and applying ice control to Category 1-3 roads starting with high-volume, high-speed roads, followed by transit routes, collector and arterial roads, as well removing snow ridges from school loading zones when school is not in session.

 On Sunday, January 9, crews will return to complete the Residential Roads Snow Plow between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. every day until complete. This is anticipated to take eight days, weather permitting. Roads which were already plowed during the Residential Snow Plow will not be plowed again at this time.

 Please visit Regina.ca/winter for an updated Residential Roads Snow Plow map.

 

Pandemic protocols remain unchanged in Sask. schools

Pandemic protocols in Saskatchewan schools will remain mostly unchanged, according to the province’s education minister.

New guidelines around reporting a positive rapid antigen test result were announced by the Government of Saskatchewan on Wednesday. If a positive rapid or PCR test result is received, staff and students are to report the result to their local school office. The school will then send a notification to those who may be considered close contacts.
