Coronavirus Update- Doing Our Part for Community Health March 19, 2020







We hope this message finds you feeling healthy and well. We are certainly facing an unprecedented public health crisis across the world, in our nation and in our local communities with the Coronavirus, now being referred to as COVID-19. 

DDRC’s leadership is working hard to make thoughtful and prudent decisions as rapidly evolving information is coming to us from various health authorities.  Due to the work and population we serve, there are many directives and recommendations given to us and many other decision points that we are working through to ensure the health and safety of all involved — those we serve, their families, our workforce and the community.  

Please continue to check here on our website for information relating to our operations and response to COVID19.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family and for your support as a volunteer, donor or member of the community. We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time.
