Outdoor Amenities

Public Health Orders allow a maximum of 200 people gathering outdoors for audience-type gatherings. However, our outdoor amenities can't accommodate 200 people at the same time. As a result, if you plan to utilize our outdoor amenities, we ask that you use your judgement. If you can enjoy an amenity while maintaining physical distancing from those outside your family or cohort, you should do so. If physical distancing can't be maintained, then we recommend you wear a mask or visit at a less busy time. Please refer to the relaunch documents noted above.

Masks are not mandated in the Town of Vegreville, but they are highly recommended. Vegreville businesses may require their customers to wear masks in their stores. We recommend if you are unsure whether a business requires masks to contact the business before visiting. Business contacts are available through our business directory.

Why use a mask

Albertans are encouraged to wear non-medical masks in public when it's difficult to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times.

Wearing a homemade or non-medical mask in public is another tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It hasn’t been proven that masks protect the person wearing it, but it can help protect people from being exposed to your germs.

Masks should complement – not replace – other prevention measures. Continue physical distancing and good hand hygiene, and stay home when sick.

When to use a mask

  • When it’s difficult to maintain 2 metres distance from people for a prolonged period of time:
    • public transit and airplanes
    • grocery stores and pharmacies
    • hair salons and barbershops
    • some retail stores
  • Masks are mandatory for Grade 4 to 12 students and all school staff, as part of the school re-entry plan
  • When mask use is mandatory by municipal bylaw, check your local community for details
