Pandemic Information

Print RSS

A pandemic is a global disease outbreak. It is likely to be a prolonged and widespread outbreak that could require temporary changes in many areas of society, such as schools, work, transportation and other public services.

This page will provide the latest on Town government operations during a pandemic. Reserve calls to 911 for imminent threats to people or property. Always follow best practices for good personal hygiene such as hand-washing. Whenever possible, stay home if you’re sick.

H1N1 flu (swine flu)

CURRENT STATUS: All Town of Cary facilities are open and operating on regular schedule. Sign up to receive the Town’s news releases for the latest information.

The Town is continuing to monitor the recent flu outbreak. We have plans in place to maintain core services and continuity of operations if the situation impacts our community.

For more information, visit the Wake County Department of Health and Human Services Web site since in North Carolina, counties – not municipalities – have the training, expertise, and responsibility for public health services.
