Starting on Monday many of the Cape Coral buildings will temporarily close their customer service counters to limit the spread of COVID-19.

This means you will not be able to go inside any of the businesses.

The police department and public annex lobbies will close to the public as well, starting Monday.

City hall is set to follow those same steps of closing their doors on Tuesday.

On Monday afternoon city leaders also decided to close all parks, playgrounds, and golf courses.

The city also encourages you to make use of online services on their website, like paying for your bill.
