Statement on Face-to-Face Meetings in Marin County,
Effective Immediately, March 16, until May 3, 2020
The Marin County Public Health office ordered all residents of Marin County to shelter at home for three weeks, beginning March 17, 2020 due to the COVID -19 outbreak. This Public Health order is in place until April 17, 2020, at 11:59 p.m.
The order directs residents to limit all activity to only the most essential needs, and though we know that your recovery may fall into that category for you, the OA Marin Intergroup strongly suggests you comply with the County directive and temporarily forego face-to-face meetings, as there are numerous alternatives available for recovery. Any meeting convening during this period will be doing so at their own risk and will be doing so outside the liability coverage of OA Marin IG Insurance.
As such, the Intergroup Conference Call telephone number, (415) 938-9021, is being made available for use during scheduled meeting times. We suggest you use your current formats and literature in a phone-in version of your usual meeting. Of course you may choose to make use of alternatives like Zoom for online face to face meetings if your meeting chooses. Or you may simply go on hiatus for the time being.
Please ask your meeting site liaison to inform your host location that you plan to return after the shelter time is over. If any meeting has financial difficulties because of suspended 7th traditions, please contact the Intergroup for assistance. No suspended meeting need lose their site for lack of funds.
Our First Tradition states, “Our common welfare comes first.” To we who are in recovery, it is a humble, serviceful thing to do as these times require, and to do as our Twelfth Tradition states, to “practice these principles in all our affairs.
