DC Ranch leadership has been closely following events and public health recommendations surrounding the outbreak and spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

There are no known cases of COVID-19 in DC Ranch at this time, but the safety of residents remains our top priority.

Therefore, we are taking steps to reduce the risk for everyone.

  • As a precaution, we have canceled all events, programs and club gatherings through March. Refunds will be issued.
  • Cancellations include, but are not limited to, the Starlight Concert on March 13, all fitness classes, all card clubs, Lifelong Learning, Program and Events Open House, Food Truck Night, Fourth Fridays, Wildflower Walk, Meet the Candidates Night, Meditation Mondays and the Home and Landscape Expo.
  • For a complete list of cancellations, please visit the dcranch.com calendar page.
  • The need to cancel or modify future programming and facility operations will be evaluated on an ongoing basis.
  • Beginning Friday, March 13, Desert Camp Community Center will remain open for limited drop-in use from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. During those hours, residents will continue to have access to the swimming pools, fitness center, tennis and pickleball courts, meeting rooms, lobby and playground.
  • Due to the cancellation of programs, The Homestead Community Center is closed until further notice.
  • The Ranch Offices on Market Street are open, and DC Ranch staff will continue to maintain their regular business hours.
  • Private rentals, drop-ins and clubs will be accommodated; However, set up for those activities will be the responsibility of the residents.
  • Residents who feel sick or have any flu-like symptoms are asked to please not use community facilities.

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. We have well-established hygiene standards and daily cleaning procedures for our facilities.

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.
