On Dec. 7 the town posted a notice on its website informing residents that its administration building is now closed to the public. However, access will be granted by appointment only or via telephone. At this time, all town departments remain operational and they are available to assist residents using alternate measures.

The notice went on to state, “As the COVID-19 numbers continue to rise in our community, the Town of Vegreville encourages everyone to follow the mandatory enhanced public health measures currently in place and help prevent the spread by:
