Supporting you during coronavirus
Meeting with each other is a key part of recovery, and, in our tradition, every group is autonomous as it makes decisions about how to support each other best. However, as COVID-19 spreads, the Sydney Intergroup, which runs this site, strongly suggests that all members and meetings take note of the Australian Government health updates here. We have many ZOOM, Skype and phone meetings as well as face-to-face meetings.
If you are a secretary of a regular meeting please consider offering your own Skype or Zoom service using this format.
Stay at home if you don't feel well. Face-to-face meetings are encouraged to:
Avoid shaking or holding hands
Use hand sanitisers and tissues
Don't pass the collection basket, leave it in the middle
Don't pass the sign-in book, let the Secretary ask your name and enter it
Space chairs so that each person sits one metre apart
Use the following statement at the start of each meeting:
“To help protect members from the spread of the coronavirus we encourage members to wash their hands with soap and water in the bathrooms before the meeting or take advantage of the hand sanitiser provided. Please sit at least one metre apart from each other, and if you sneeze, please do so either into your inside-elbow or into a tissue.
“During the 3rd step prayer at the end of the meeting, please DO NOT hold hands. When greeting one another, please avoid shaking hands or hugging. You may wish to use elbow bumps or namaste instead.
"Members who are unwell should stay at home. There are links to online and telephone meetings on the SLAA Australia website.”
