Current Status

The State of North Carolina is currently under Governor Cooper's Safer at Home Phase 2, which restricts occupancy, gathering size, and business operations and has been extended until at least September 11. Executive Order 147, issued June 26, requires face masks in both indoor and outdoor public spaces where physical distancing of six feet is not possible at all times.

Cary Town Hall and all other staffed facilities, with the exception of the Citizen’s Convenience Center, are closed to the public. Cary programs and events have been canceled until further notice. Summer camps have been canceled through August 31.
