There is the Tunstall Bay Residents Facebook group.
There’s the Scarborough Neighbourhood Page.
There’s the Cates Hill Neighbourhood Association Facebook group.
There’s the new Deep Bay Neighbours Facebook group. Deep Bay NERP volunteer Judi Gedye wrote a letter online requesting help contacting all the neighbourhood residents without making physical contact or leaving papers.
“We need contact information (phone numbers and email) as soon as possible, and at the same time, without invading anyone’s privacy, we need to figure out who might need what kind of assistance. We also need to find volunteers willing to help, in ways that are safe for everyone. Public health is stressing no personal contact and that includes leaving printed material at the door,” wrote Gedye. “The best news is that we are a small, close-knit neighbourhood so we probably do know how to reach all of our neighbours. I would ask each of us to telephone (preferably) or email as many neighbours as we have phone numbers for and ask if their number can be shared to the NERP organizers––not for publication and not for widespread distribution; just for the NERP volunteers in Deep Bay. NERP will create a list of names, addresses, closest neighbours, contact info and whether they would like to be contacted in future.”

“The Bluewater community has been hard at work creating a support system for their neighbourhood. If you are a Bluewater or King Edward Bay resident and need support during the COVID-19 outbreak, and would love a little extra help with groceries, prescription, mail or errands, please reach out to Judy at 604-947-0343 or Diane at 604-861-7334. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional community resources can be found online at: www.bluewateronbowen.com and www.facebook.com/groups/bluewateronbowen,” said a representative for the Bluewater initiative.
Maureen Nicholson started the Flatten the Curve – Bowen Island Facebook Group.
The group’s description says that the group is for “Posts requesting help or offering help for those that are sick, quarantined, or self-isolating and living on Bowen Island.” The group is private so one must request or be invited to join it.
