Senior VIP Call Line: 954-340-5001
The City of Coral Springs is committed to doing everything possible to protect the senior population from the spread of COVID-19 and its impact. We will continue to facilitate information and resources for seniors throughout this crisis.
Multiple grocery stores and pharmacies are offering special hours for the senior community. Currently, the CDC urges older adults to stay home and away from people to best protect their health. The special hours will relieve the senior community from coming into contact with large groups; however, there is an online option for grocery shopping that alleviates individuals from shopping in public by delivering groceries to your home. See participating stores.
