City Lifts Some Restrictions as State of Emergency Continues

City of St. John’s snow clearing crews continue to work around the clock to clear streets for regular traffic. While progress is being made after the significant snow fall experienced on Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18, at this point we do not feel that the roads are cleared adequately for general city movement and traffic.

  • Private snow contractors will be permitted to conduct snow clearing operations effective immediately.
  • Gas stations are permitted to open effective immediately for the purposes of fuel for snow clearing.
  • Pharmacies are permitted to open from noon until 7pm for emergency medication needs. 

More snow is expected on Sunday evening into Monday. The state of emergency is still in effect. Please stay in and off city streets.
