From empty mall parking lots to playgrounds, a Kelowna videographer has captured Kelowna’s quiet cityscape at the beginning of the lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The video features aerial footage of the city, called “An Ariel Time Capsule for Kelowna” and was posted to YouTube by Shawn Talbot today, May 14.

“The clips in this video were captured over several mornings in Kelowna, B.C. at the peak of the lockdowns implemented during the pandemic. This reminder of the quiet and the stillness in our community at that time is dedicated to the countless essential workers and their families who put their health and safety on the line for all of us,” Talbot wrote in the description of the video.

This week is also National Nursing Week from May 11 to 17.
