London health officials are warning secondary students to avoid a large street party usually held this weekend.
Western University is holding its 72nd homecoming event this weekend, which is usually marked by a large unsanctioned street party.
The City of London says that with allegations of COVID-19 and recent sexual assault in Western countries, students should avoid the party that is usually held on Brudell Avenue on the Saturday of homecoming weekend.

The Middlesex-London Health Unit says it has issued orders this week that limit social gatherings to 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors.
London Police say their presence will be strengthened and they will enforce the rules they have created.
During Western Orientation Week in early September, four girl students came out with allegations of sexual assault, and police began investigating allegations of mass drugging on social media and sexual assault at a residence.
An 18-year-old Western student also died after the off-campus attack.
