Covid-19: Status of Facilities and Programs

Last updated July 16, 2020


All Cary staffed facilities are closed to the public. For the health and safety of our firefighters and citizens, we have closed all fire stations to visitors and are not accepting donations at fire stations at this time. Our firefighters appreciate your kindness and look forward to welcoming you back to our fire stations. The Cary Police Station is operational but closed to the public. For emergencies, dial 911.

The Citizen’s Convenience Center remains open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. Visitors are required to follow social distancing practices, unload their own items for disposal, and keep any children in the car at all times.

To support the health and safety of our citizens and employees, we are increasing the frequency with which we clean surfaces in Town of Cary facilities where essential employees are working. We have enacted even more thorough cleaning and sanitizing protocols for facilities and employees at fire stations, water treatments facilities, fire and police vehicles, and in our Emergency Operations Center. A majority of Town employees are working remotely in their homes during this pandemic.


Parks & Greenways

Cary playgrounds are closed until further notice. Parks, greenways, athletic fields, and courts remain open. Visitors are required to practice social distancing and maintain separation of six feet from other visitors to the park.


Cary Boards & Commissions

Most Town advisory boards and commissions meetings through the end of July are canceled, with the exception of the Planning & Zoning Board meeting scheduled for July 27, which will now be held virtually. All other boards and commissions will restart their meetings virtually at later dates according to the existing schedule, and any meetings eventually held in person will do so with the practice of social distancing and other safety measures.



All NC Public Schools will remain closed through the end of the academic school year. Learn more at the Wake County Public School System website.


Programming & Events

All Cary Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources programming including classes, events, facility rentals, and leagues is canceled until further notice. Summer camps have been canceled through August 31. Some events have been modified to occur online, and some have been rescheduled. These are listed below.

Registration for summer 2020 programming has been postponed until further notice. Full refunds will be issued for any current or future ticketed Town events canceled due to COVID-19. If you are registered for or have tickets to an event, program, league, or class that is not canceled, but you do not feel comfortable attending, the Town will also issue a refund. Citizens are encouraged to call the facility at which the event was scheduled for up-to-date information, or contact Cary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources at (919) 469-4061 or for refund assistance.
