Gov. Doug Ducey issued a new executive order on Monday, March 30 ordering all Arizona residents to remain in their homes for the next month except for essential needs.

Therefore, DC Ranch is following the recommendations of federal and state public health agencies and taking additional steps to help reduce the risk and slow the spread of the virus.

  • Desert Camp and the Homestead Community Centers are closed until at least April 30.
    • This includes meeting, fitness and locker rooms, restrooms, swimming pools, playgrounds, basketball, tennis and pickleball courts, splashpad, patio, and veranda. Residents will not have access into the buildings. We are completing some community center maintenance and improvement projects during this closure.

    • Security, emergency personnel, landscape and maintenance staff will continue to serve residents.
    • All exterior modification requests, inspections and open house assistance have been suspended indefinitely.

Additional guidance
The leadership team is closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)World Health Organization (WHO) and Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) updates regarding COVID-19 and following their recommendations on the appropriate health and safety measures.

DC Ranch recognizes the seriousness of this situation, and should circumstances change – whether based on a governmental decree or otherwise – we will examine all options necessary for the safety and well-being of residents.

Please care for yourself and for those around you and continue to adhere to the preventative measures as recommended by public health officials.

Our community is strong, and we look forward to reengaging as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, as official guidelines continue to evolve, please check your email and DCRanch.com/coronavirus for updates.
