CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Coral Springs’ Aquatic Complex and  Mullins Pool will reopen Saturday and Cypress Pool on Monday after a city employee tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Friday.

As a precaution, the city shut down the pools this week to be disinfected once it was learned the employee tested positive. The employee’s name and position have not been released.

In addition, staff members who were exposed to the positive employee were tested for the virus, and they were virus-free, officials said.
