The City of Goldsboro is taking proactive steps in light of the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce the spread of infection, avoid excessive strain on our health care system and potentially save lives. As such, the following precautions are in place.
■ City Facilities: City of Goldsboro government facilities are open to the public without the need for an appointment. Residents and visitors are still encouraged to conduct business with our departments through email, phone, mail, and website resources as much as possible to help maintain social distancing guidelines. Those who do visit our facilities are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while inside.
■ Paramount Theatre: The Paramount is open to the public by appointment and during public events. The theatre can accommodate public audiences of up to 150. A listing of all upcoming performances and current information is available at http://www.goldsboroparamount.com/. The Goldsboro Event Center is open to the public for events with up to 185 attendees. For more information, contact the Paramount at 919-583-8432 or the Event Center at 919-735-4075.

■ Police Department: Fingerprinting services will be provided on Wednesdays from 8-10 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. by appointment. The cost is $10, cash only, and picture ID is required. Applicants will be required to make an appointment, wash or sanitize hands upon entering the facility, and wear a face mask.
