Town announces facility closures

Author: Kaleb Brink Posted on: Mar 16, 2020

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately, the Town of Vegreville Council has elected to close the following facilities until further notice:

  • The Aquatic and Fitness Centre
  • Wally Fedun Arena
  • Multiplex
  • Social Centre; and the
  • Vegreville Centennial Library Complex.

This decision was not made lightly, and we apologize for the inconvenience this will undoubtedly cause. We feel strongly that we need to do our part to prevent the spread among our residents, staff, and most vulnerable.

Our Administration Building remains open at this time. However, specific programs that require close interaction between staff and the public have been temporarily cancelled. Please call 780-632-2606 to inquire about specific program cancellations.

We ask that if you're sick, or if you have recently returned from outside of Canada, that you avoid coming to our offices. If possible, we kindly ask that you give us a call instead. We can be reached at 780-632-2606, 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday to Friday.

We want to assure residents that our essential services will remain intact. Water will run, garbage will be picked up, and streets will be cleared. We've invested considerable time and care into a business continuity plan that will ensure, no matter the effects of this pandemic, that residents will continue to receive the services they need.

Finally, we'd like to reiterate to residents, that the best thing you can do is to remain calm. Our facility closures are precautionary and necessary to flatten the COVID-19 pandemics curve.
