Health measures adhere to the Alberta Government Restrictions Exemptions Program. Most important: stay home if you have any COVID-19 symptoms!

COVID-19 protocols are in place for everyone’s safety. Everybody is welcome provided you are masked, provide proof of being fully vaccinated (aged 12 and older) or provide proof of a negative, privately-paid test result from a recent (72 hours) sample for those aged 12 and older. The rapid test document must be signed by an accredited health care professional, such as a pharmacist. According to AHS regulations, self-administed tests are not acceptable.

Thank You!

We are very grateful for the generous donations and expressions of appreciation that have been received from our readers. Your support, both financial and moral, is very encouraging. 

As many of you know, The Bergen News is facing a deficit this year. Income has not kept pace with increasing costs. For each copy:

  • Printing = $1.80
  • Postage = $1.30
  • cost to mail also includes an envelope and label

The extremely generous support of the County covers approximately half of our expenses and extra donations and advertising also help. For anyone who is willing and able to pay the actual printing and mailing cost of $37.00 per year for 12 issues, we would very much appreciate your extra contribution. Changing your subscription from a mailed hard copy to a digital subscription will also reduce our costs, and will make it even easier for you to take The Bergen News with you wherever you go!

The year-end annual report required by the County will be included in the January issue of The Bergen News so readers can see exactly where we stand financially.

Thanks again for your support and we hope to keep you entertained and informed for years to come.

Bergen Road Construction Update

Construction on Bergen Road between Highway 22 and Fallen Timber Road is ongoing and scheduled to be completed by the end of June (with favorable weather).

There will be periodic lane closures and motorists are warned to expect rough road conditions in the construction zone. Motorists are asked to use alternate routes where possible.

In addition, Range Road 54 between Township Road 322 and Township Road 320 will be closed from May 10th to June 11th to allow a culvert replacement. Local residents will have access to their properties, but there is no through traffic. The detour route to Highway 760 is shown on the county’s map (below). This detour brings motorists into a portion of the main Bergen Road (RR 320) construction project.

The County website provides details of the work and a link to an app that will provide updates to users.
