Latest Update: August 19, 2021
Face coverings are required inside town facilities for employees and the public, regardless of vaccination status. (This includes Town Hall, the Halle Cultural Arts Center, John M. Brown Community Center, Public Works buildings, Public Safety Stations, and The Depot.) Exceptions to the mask policy are consistent with those applicable to state facilities and are as follows: Persons with medical or behavioral conditions or a disability, children under five years of age, persons actively eating or drinking, anyone hearing impaired that requires visibility for communication, temporary removal for identification purposes.
Although we do encourage individuals to wear masks when groups of people not from the same household gather indoors, at this time, there is no mask mandate issued by the Town of Apex for facilities or other spaces that are not owned by the town. Individual businesses within town limits may decide to require masks.
Wake County has issued a mask mandate that applies to their government facilities, as well as privately owned facilities in areas that are not within the corporate limits of the 12 municipalities located in Wake County. (This mandate does not cover facilities located within Apex town limits.)
The Town of Apex continues to follow the guidance provided by the CDC and direction given by the NC Governor.

What Apex is Doing
To reduce the risk of exposure to our employees and community, the Town of Apex is in the process of implementing the following measures:
- Limiting the number of employees in town buildings whenever possible, through alternating shifts and using remote work to the fullest extent.
- Placing thermal readers at various town facilities.
- Holding meetings in person only when absolutely necessary.
- Restricting business travel and training, large conferences, or meetings as well as any business travel by airline. This date will be reevaluated frequently.
- Asking employees to wash hands upon entering their building each morning, and any time they enter a different town facility.
- Advising janitorial services to thoroughly wipe and sanitize door handles, stair rails, and light switches when cleaning town facilities.
- Preparing deep clean sanitation plans for any town facility where an exposure may have occurred.
- Continuing use of proper PPE for those who jobs may have a higher risk of exposure.
The Town of Apex follows the guidance of agencies that monitor public health, as it relates to the coronavirus and any other major public health issue. These include the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, and the Wake County Division of Public Health.
