As a consequence of the recent spike in the presence of Covid-19 variants in the Regina area, proceedings in the Court of Queen’s Bench at the Judicial Centre of Regina will be conducted remotely whenever possible and may be adjourned when the proceeding cannot take place remotely. In addition entrance into court houses in other judicial centres of persons who have recently travelled to or from Regina may be restricted. Counsel should alert the Local Registrar if a participant in a upcoming scheduled court proceeding have recently travelled to or from Regina.
