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
Parks, greenways, playgrounds, 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.
