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 22, the county has received 72 complaints about businesses located in Coral Springs.
The businesses received citations for violations ranging from disobeying orders to those not taking required measures that would allow proper social distancing.
We’ve continued to keep tabs on both the number of complaints received by the county about Coral Springs, as well as the actual warning citations issued to businesses after an in-person review of the situation.
Since our last update on July 17, Coral Springs has had eight warning citations issued to businesses. The citations issued include a pair of companies that are multiple-time offenders.
The Coral Square Mall continues to see complaints. This time, multiple citations were issued for Macy’s, Don Pon Bakery, and in general, customers walking around the building.
The citation received by Macy’s referenced a manager who was not wearing a mask, while the Don Pon indicated a manager was handling food with her mask below her chin.
Betti Stradling Park, located at 10301 Wiles Road, received two warning citations, both on July 21. Both complaints referenced a lack of social distancing in the park, including full-court basketball games and a group of 40 people congregating around the courts.
Urban Air, located at 7501 Wiles Road, received their second warning citation after a complaint was filed on July 19. The citation was issued after a caller indicated “hardly anyone” was wearing a mask in the trampoline park.
The complaint also mentions employees unwilling to ask patrons to follow CDC guidelines.
Spin Cite, located at 9863 West Sample Road, received a citation on July 21 after a complaint was filed claiming not only was no one in the business wearing a mask, but this fact was being “flaunted online.”
The complaint also mentioned that there was a lack of social distancing at the gym, and few people were wearing masks during their workout.
7-11, located 5615 North University Drive, received a citation on July 19 after a complaint was filed that indicated no employees were wearing masks.
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
