Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario (ESWO) believes it is our social responsibility to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and will be taking precautions based on the recommendations of Public Health Agency of Canada and World Health Organization to practice social distancing whenever feasible:
Virtual Work Spaces
Our team will be working from home for the next while, which means our office will be closed. However, we will be accessible by email as always.
As a precaution, we have cancelled children’s programming (Game On), public gatherings and education sessions for the time being. Please note that we will do our best to provide education sessions through technological platforms when possible.
Epilepsy Awareness Month
Epilepsy Awareness Month gatherings have been cancelled. We have extended the Purple Door Campaign until April 10th, in order to allow schools to participate.
Annual Spring Gala Postponed
Our 34th Annual Spring Gala has been postponed until May 30, 2020. For more details, click here.
Although the current public health risk has been assessed (by Public Health Agency of Canada) as low for the general population, the ESWO team feels it is prudent to take precautions to protect our clients, families, volunteers and staff. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
