Coronavirus response

March 29, 2021

On March 25, Gov. Ducey announced a new executive order lifting all state-imposed COVID-19 restrictions.

As we chart a course toward reopening, the health and safety of DC Ranch residents are of the utmost importance. Per the executive order and CDC guidelines, DC Ranch will continue to encourage adequate safety precautions, including recommending face coverings and physical distancing to help protect residents and employees and minimize the spread of COVID-19 when visiting the community centers and offices.

Additional information will be provided, and signage will be updated as the transition is rolled out in phases.
