How The Tyee Is Covering COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is all over the media. What does The Tyee seek to add?

Our legislative bureau chief Andrew MacLeod is tracking actions by the province. Contributing editors Crawford Kilian and Andrew Nikiforuk are providing wider context: where is the outbreak taking us and how did we get here?

All the Tyee’s team is now focused on the crisis, doubling our daily story output. Reporters Katie Hyslop, Chris Cheung, Moira Wyton and Amanda Follett Hosgood are working around the clock, complemented by other regular contributors and our new partnership with the team of Hakai Magazine.

What we're up to. How to be involved.

Say hello to The Tyee’s new virtual office

In-person gatherings are out, but the news never stops. The Tyee team has moved to a 100 per cent remote newsroom, settling into a new way of working while bringing you in-depth reporting updated throughout the day on the situation in B.C. during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re physically isolating, but keeping social through daily video calls. Pictured right is part of the Tyee team, calling in from our new home offices.

We hear you.

We were caught ‘flat-footed’
(click to read in context)

One observation that is clearly being presented is how inadequate our social safety net really is.

We seem to have been caught totally flat-footed here. We can’t say we were never warned of a possible pandemic. Scientists have been flagging this scenario for decades.

When this pandemic subsides we can and must do better for all citizens.

Best of luck to all of you who told your story here! I hope this ends soon, and you can pick up living a somewhat normal life again.

How are you making it through social distancing?

  • Virtually connecting with friends and family.
  • Mobile activities – exercise, gardening, cleaning the cupboards – you name it!
  • Reading, movies, cooking and other solo pursuits
  • Getting through? I’m in my essence.
  • Badly, it's tough.
