CORAL SPRINGS, FL – City officials offered Monday more details on which businesses are considered non-essential and required to close to the public as a result of a Broward County order.

They also explained that those businesses can still operate as long as they do their work over the phone or digitally or through mailing, shipping and delivery services.

Additionally, officials explained that non-essential businesses are permitted “to perform the minimum activities necessary to preserve the value of their inventory, preserve their plant and equipment condition, provide security, process payroll and employee benefits, and facilitate employees working remotely so long as non-essential businesses practice social distancing and all other measures as advised by the CDC.”
