COVID-19: Information for Citizens

Last updated October 21, 2020

Current Status

The Town of Cary is under a State of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The State of North Carolina is currently under Phase 3 of Governor Cooper's plan to coordinate the state's response and manage activities that promote the spread of infection. 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, and remains in effect throughout the current phase.

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.

What We’re Asking of Citizens

  • Stay at home. Please only travel away from your home for essential needs.
  • Reserve calls to 911 for imminent threats to people or property. 
  • Maintain social distancing of six feet from other people when possible, as recommended by the CDC.
  • Always follow best practices for good personal hygiene such as hand-washing.
  • Wear a mask in public places where it is not possible to social distance, as required by the Governor's Executive Order
  • Whenever possible, stay home if you’re sick, and as always, take care of each other in every situation.

Cary, N.C.—The Town of Cary invites residents to explore the feasibility of a new Downtown Cary Multimodal Transit Facility during a public comment period beginning Monday, October 19, 2020. This proposed new facility would provide a convenient and connected hub for local and regional bus service, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), future commuter rail service, and Amtrak intercity passenger rail services. The virtual engagement opportunity will address topics such as: “What is a multimodal center?” and “Why does Cary need one?”  To participate, the public should visit October 19 through October 30.
