Area 79 Covid-19 Update

AREA 79 COVID-19 UPDATE

With the current health and safety regulations around public gatherings please be mindful that the majority of Area 79 meetings are not happening in person.

Each group is autonomous and is guided by a well-informed group conscience. Here are some links to help you and your group be informed of the protective measures, strong guidance and recommendations of your own local communities.

EXCERPT FROM MAY 11, 2020

Note: G.S.O. is not an authoritative body over A.A. groups, nor does it initiate rules or directives, as each A.A. group and entity is autonomous and decisions are made through an individual group conscience. Providing guidance on health issues is outside the scope of the A.A. sharing that G.S.O. offers.

EXCERPT FROM MARCH 19, 2020

It is important to note the G.S.O. is not an authoritative body over our groups, nor does it initiate rules or directives, as each A.A. group and entity is autonomous and decisions are made through its group conscience. Providing guidance on health issues is outside the scope of the A.A. sharing that G.S.O. offers. For anyone experiencing health and safety questions, it is suggested they contact national, state/provincial and local health authorities for appropriate information. However, in response to the global outbreak, we do have some general experience regarding how some A.A. groups and members have begun to address this issue. Many are following ‘’social distancing’’ guidelines established by local, state, provincial, and federal officials, while at the same time maintaining their recovery and attending digital A.A. meetings.
