Covid-19 Meeting closures

Covid-19 – temporary meeting closures

With the Declaration of a State of Emergency by the Government of Ontario, many venues are closed for the foreseeable future.

In-person Meetings

However, Public Health Ontario has advised that Al-Anon is classified as one of the mental health essential services.

If members choose to meet it is recommended that

  1. they stay 6 feet apart,
  2. wear a mask if you have one, and
  3. the meeting takes place outside if possible. If you are sick, it is asked that you not meet.

  • if the facility allows you to meet inside you can only have 30% of the ROOM capacity or 10 people.
  • again keep 6′ distance inside or out. Masks are mandatory.
