Did you see Pima County Health Department's video showing Pima County COVID-19 case occurrence over time? The bulk of the cases appear in Tucson with very few cases in Marana. In fact, according to Arizona State Health Department, the Dove Mountain area zip code (85658) only has 12 confirmed cases. Could it be that open space and our great outdoor recreation (hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, golf, etc.) is helping limit our COVID-19 cases? I am just saying!

Keep up the good work! Be safe! Be healthy!


The following photos were taken in the Tortolita Preserve this morning. Still plenty of color as the cactus continue to bloom.
