Several Coral Springs businesses were reported for not following precautions put in place by the Center for Disease Control in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.
As of July 17, the county has received 64 complaints about businesses located in Coral Springs. They received citations for violations ranging from disobeying orders to those not taking required measures that would allow proper social distancing.
Earlier this month, we covered complaints and citations stemming from June. Since then, the database has updated for July.
Of the 64 complaints filed against Coral Springs businesses, 16 have resulted in a warning citation being issued. Two of those citations were for the two Target locations in the city.
The Target located at 4400 State Road 7 was issued a warning citation on July 9, even though a customer presented a note from their doctor. This happened after a customer witnessed the person shopping without a mask. After being stopped by management, the customer produced the note and was allowed to continue shopping.
A warning citation was issued on July 6 for the Target located at 9600 Westview Drive after a customer filed a complaint that claimed management allowed a child to shop without a mask. According to the complaint, management witnessed the child “running around and touching everything without a mask on,” but did nothing to stop them.
On July 13, the Broward Tag Agency located at 1160 North University Drive was hit with a warning citation after a customer complained that no social distancing was present inside the store, and some customers were not wearing their masks above their nose.
The complaint claims the customer witnessed a line that ran outside the Tag Agency, and once they entered the building, there was no social distancing being enforced.
Winn Nail Spa, located at 9630 Westview Drive, issued a citation on July 11 after a complaint was filed with the county claiming nail technicians were not sanitizing equipment, and there was no social distancing in the spa.
As of July 17, nine complaints made against Coral Springs businesses are labeled as “pending review.” Once we receive a final verdict on the yet to be investigated claims, we will provide an update to this article.
If you believe a business is not complying to emergency orders or CDC guidelines, you can submit a complaint to the City of Coral Springs online form, or call the Business Hotline 954-344-5772
