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

Al-Anon is classified as one of the mental health essential services according to Public Health Ontario and are able to meet within public health guidelines (Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Heath).

If members choose to meet in-person, it is recommended that:

  • If you are sick, you not attend an in-person meeting
  • stay 6 feet apart
  • wear a mask
  • the meeting should take place outside, if possible
  • a maximum of 10 people inside, per group.  If there are more than 10, you will need 2 (or more) separate meetings.  Splitting mid way is not allowed
  • each group, whether inside or out should have hand sanitizer or a washing station

As the province relaxes regulations about gathering, District 4 has several ‘in-person’ meetings:

If anyone questions you, reference article 44 of Public Health about essential services.

If you would like to meet in person and have a venue that is available (as some remain closed), please send the details to the District Representative or Alternate District Rep and we will post the information on the website.

We have set up several virtual meetings each week until further notice – you can view them on our Virtual meetings page
