New rules governing events and gatherings at The Neuro


Published: 16Mar2020

In order to limit potential exposure to COVID-19, The Neuro has adopted additional special measures for gatherings and events within The Neuro complex, including Neuro activities in other buildings such as the Lyman Duff and Ludmer buildings.

As of March 13 and until June 30, 2020, all events and gatherings at The Neuro are cancelled.  This applies to all conferences, lectures, rounds, symposia, workshops, congresses, tours, public awareness events etc. with visiting speakers and\or internal speakers, as well as to large group meetings.  Standing room reservations will be held in the system, even though activities are suspended.

The timeline for cancellations and/or postponements will be re-evaluated and communicated as the situation evolves.


Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others:

  • Wash your hands often with soap under warm running water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available
  • When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs
  • If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards

We ask members of our community who have flu-like symptoms to isolate themselves as quickly as possible, limiting contact with others, including visitors, and avoiding contact with individuals with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems.

As the COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving, we expect to send updates as new information becomes available and decisions are made.
