RCSCW Reopening Metrics

Screening Checkpoint

Residents, we wanted to clean up some confusion we have been seeing on our social media pages.  There has been a lot of back and forth about whether or not there are any cases in Sun City West, with some people believing there are no cases because the state has not reported any “Sun City West” cases.

We want everyone to know that all the SCW cases will be reported as “Maricopa County” cases.  Do not expect to see a number for SCW.  Additionally, we know that the lack of testing availability means some of our Covid-19 cases are not reported in official numbers and some of these people are caring for themselves at home.

Local emergency personnel have confirmed they are responding to and treating an increased number of Covid-19 cases in Sun City West.  Because of our populations age, this is especially concerning.

Please do not let this period of silent spread lull you into a feeling that you do not need to social distance.  Steps already taken in this community to keep residents safe HAS made a difference and our community is seeing fewer Covid-related calls than some other areas, but that doesn’t mean it’s not here and spreading.  It is.

If you are having a medical emergency, whether it’s related to Covid-19 symptoms or something else, call 911 (let them know if you suspect Covid so they can take proper precautions). If your symptoms are mild, care for yourself at home.

Be safe.  Stay home.  Share this information with your friends and neighbors.  Please give this a couple weeks to play out and we will have a better handle on the extent of the problem.  Listen to the CDC and heed their advice.

We’re all in this together.  Thank you.
