COVID-19 One Year On

One year ago, our lives were irrevocably changed when the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 pandemic. While we continue to live through a significant moment in our history, LHSC is marking March 11 as a Day of Reflection as we collectively celebrate our strength and resiliency while acknowledging the lasting trauma and loss this year has wrought. The innovation, resiliency and achievements that have been made over the past year could not have been possible without our many health-system partners and the support of our community.

To help us recall how impactful this year has been, London Health Sciences Centre has developed this timeline of the pandemic. Recognizing every individual has experienced the pandemic differently, these events are by no means exhaustive, and are exclusive to LHSC’s corporate experience. To reflect the individual experience of some LHSC care providers, please watch this video featuring reflections of our staff and physicians.
