The City of Coral Springs issued its latest order limiting ten kids, including staff, in a daycare setting.
This order is requiring any daycare, pre-kindergarten, private school, early learning, camp, or business that provides childcare to any person under the age of 18 in a group, to adhere to specific regulations for class size, sanitation of facilities and screening for illness.
Childcare must be carried out in stable groups of ten or fewer children, and childcare providers shall not change from one group to another. If more than one group of children is cared for at one facility, each group shall be in a separate room.
Groups shall not mix or interact with each other. All play equipment used by one group of children must be cleaned and sanitized before use by another group of children. Any child exhibiting symptoms consisted of COVID-9 illness shall not be allowed to stay in the childcare facility.
Also, the Governor issued Executive Order 20-72. Which prohibits medical professionals from providing any medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedure or surgery which, if delayed, does not place a patient’s immediate health, safety, or well-being at risk, or will, if delayed, not contribute to the worsening of a serious or life-threatening medical condition. We recommend our residents talk to their medical provider to determine if a planned procedure is delayed.
The Code Compliance Division is currently focusing its efforts on public health and safety issues. Non-emergency code cases are being reviewed and extended. Non-emergency complaints will be addressed at a later date. If you have need assistance regarding a code matter, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 954 344-5964.
To reduce the exposure of staff and customers, the One-Stop-Shop at City Hall, which provides service for building, water billing, code enforcement, and permitting, has adjusted their hours: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Residents of Broward County concerned they may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms should call 954-412-7300 before traveling to any health care facility.
