CORAL SPRINGS, FL – If you see a business in Coral Springs failing to comply with coronavirus emergency orders, you now have a place to submit an online complaint.
The city government has created an online portal for residents to fill out a form and explain the potential violation, such as employees not wearing masks or stores being crowded with more than the allowed 50 percent capacity.
The city said in a social media post that the portal is not meant for “to snitch or shut down a business.” It’s intended to prevent the city’s non-emergency number from being inundated with calls about compliance.
“Protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, workforce and employees has been and will continue to be our central focus until we have managed to mitigate and control the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” the city said.
Those submitting complaints are required to name the business, write the address of the business, and detail their complaint.
The complaints will be reviewed for accuracy and, if necessary, city officials will educate businesses with proper coronavirus protocols and provide them with necessary personal protective equipment. Learn about the safety guidelines here.
