Downtown Revelstoke was quieter than the quietest Sunday this morning, Friday March 20, a usually busy spring break day.

Most downtown businesses are closed, with the exception of a few essential services such as pharmacies, grocery stores, the media clinic and a handful of other services.

Here are some photos from downtown Revelstoke this morning around 9 a.m.
