Port Renfrew, Pacheedaht say isolation first line of pandemic defence – Times Colonist
November 25, 2020
Port Renfrew and the Pacheedaht First Nation have not reported a COVID-19 case in their region — and they want to keep it that way.
The remote community of about 400 on the southern tip of the Island is asking visitors to stay away and its own citizens to avoid non-essential travel to larger service centres such as Sooke, Duncan and Victoria.
Port Renfrew has limited cellphone service and only one general store and a gas station, which are operated by the Pacheedaht Nation. There is a small volunteer fire department and an ambulance station operating 24/7, with the closest hospitals at Victoria and Duncan about two hours away.
