Video report by Michael Billington
One year ago the UK was put into a national lockdown - the Prime Minister addressed the nation at 8pm on 23rd March 2020 - the message stay at home.
Since then, there have been 10,774 deaths within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test across Yorkshire and the Humber.
Nationally, the figure is 126,172 people.
Charity Marie Curie is coordinating a 'National Day of Reflection' to encourage people to come together and reflect on our collective loss.
It's an opportunity to support those who have been bereaved, and to hope for a brighter future.
In South Yorkshire, police officers are wearing daffodils to remember those who have lost loved ones during the pandemic.
The minute's silence being observed at Ramsden Primary School in Worksop
The minute's silence was observed at several cathedrals in the region including:
Most cathedrals are also open for personal prayer and to light a candle throughout the day.
Emergency service depots and a number of hospitals have also taken part.
The silence was also conducted in Westminster. Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons, said: "None of us has escaped the ordeal of Covid-19 – from the shock of having our liberty taken away, to the heartbreak of losing someone we loved.
He continued: "So, a year on, it is right that we take a moment to reflect on what we as a nation have been through; that we pay tribute to the many lives lost and the families that mourn them, and we say a big ‘thank you’ to our NHS staff who have worked so tirelessly on the front line caring for people in need."

Mental Health and Lockdown
Dr Jilly Gibson Miller speaks to ITV News
There have been fears that lockdown will lead to a mental health crisis in the UK, however, Dr Jilly Gibson-Miller from the University of Sheffield told ITV News that there hasn't been a surge in demand for mental health support in the last year.
Dr Gibson-Miller did say that younger people were more likely to have mental health issues as a result of the pandemic.
Support and advice for people struggling with their mental health can be found at the Britain Get Talking website.
