Coronavirus Update – Closures Extended Indefinitely

Pima County’s Board of Supervisors voted Thursday to extend business closures past the original target date (March 31st). In alignment with this and Arizona Governor Ducey’s recent public instruction to Arizona Businesses, GVR centers will remain CLOSED past our targeted reopening date of April 1, 2020. Our reopening date is to be determined and will be announced through GVR eBlasts and this website.

With the rapid increase of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in our community and around the world, Green Valley Recreation, Inc. is committed to doing everything necessary to help slow and stop its spread. We continue to monitor the situation and will take all the required measures to ensure the health and safety of our members and staff.

While continuing to maintain and care for GVR facilities, we are following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations to limit employee’s exposure and interactions with other people by altering and staggering staff schedules. GVR also has an active and capable remote work culture and the IT infrastructure to support both our employees and our business. All employees who can do so, have been asked to work from home. Key employees who need specific access to our offices follow the same guidelines for reduced exposure and interactions with others. We have also placed restrictions on traveling, events, face-to-face meetings, handshakes and greetings.

GVR will continue to closely follow the CDC, WHO, Arizona Department of Health and Pima County Health Department updates regarding COVID-19 and make any additional adjustments as necessary. As we all look forward to things returning to normal, our thoughts are with those directly affected by COVID-19 as well as our members, staff and their families. Working together, we are putting the health and well-being of our community and families first.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
