COVID-19 Update #1

Message from the President & CEO

March 13, 2020

I am providing you with an update regarding London Health Sciences Foundation's (LHSF) response to COVID-19. We are undertaking precautions to limit the spread of this virus to protect our employees, donors, volunteers and community.

London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) has made the decision today to cancel all large groups hosted by the hospital. In addition, the Foundation will be postponing donor tours and gift presentations and will provide further updates in regards to upcoming Events.

The Foundation office is currently open, although we continue to monitor the situation and consider the health and well-being of our employees.

The steps above are being taken out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to reduce risk. We want to do our part in the fight against COVID-19 at LHSF and in London and our surrounding community.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. I appreciate your continued support during this challenging time.


John MacFarlane, BBA, LL.B, MPA
