Now that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has relaxed stay at home restrictions, some of our neighbors are needing to schedule appointments for regular visits and procedures that have been delayed for two months. Some neighbors are also wanting to venture out and do their own shopping. Staff, drivers, and neighbors are all required to follow VVCC's updated COVID-19 protocols.
