Is a locally compact hereditarily Lindelof Hausdorff space first countable?

Is a locally compact hereditarily Lindelof Hausdorff space first countable? I was recently told that it is but I can't find any reference to what I would have thought would be a standard fact if it is ...

Paracompact Hausdorff Space with Dense Lindelof subset is Lindelof

Let $X$ be a Paracompact Hausdroff space with a dense subset $A$ which is Lindelöf. Then, $X$ is Lindelof I've written down my attenpt below - As per the hint in the problem, as a paracompact $T_2$ ...

Embedding Regular Lindelöf Space in a Hausdorff Space

Preliminary definition - $G_{\delta}$ Closed: A set $A$ is $G_{\delta}$ closed if each point $x\not\in A$ is contained in a $G_{\delta}$ set disjoint from $A$. Willard states that - A regular space ...

$Y\subset X$ is Lindelof iff Every $X$-open cover of $Y$ has a countable $X$-open subcover. [duplicate]

Suppose $(X,\tau)$ is a topological space and $A\subset X$,suppose $\{G_\alpha\}$ is an open cover of $A$ i.e. $A\subset \cup G_\alpha$,does there exist a countable subcover $\{G_{\alpha_n}\}$ of $A$....

Almost Lindelöf spaces.

I'm working on the study of almost Lindelöf spaces and I'm stuck searching a counterexample. First, the definition. Let $X$ be a topological space. We say that $X$ is an almost Lindelöf space if ...

Countable subspace of a Lindelöf space

Let $X$ be a Lindelöf space, and $E \subset X$. I am interested in the following property. (1) $E$ is countable $\Leftrightarrow$ $\forall x \in X, \exists U_x$ open set such that $x \in U_x$ ...
Let $X$ be Lindelöf and let $A \subseteq X$ be closed. Show that it follows that $A$ is Lindelöf. That is, we want to show for every open cover of $A$, there is a countable subcover. Note: (A space ...
