Coronavirus and AA meetings
Your identity on Zoom meetings: If you join a Zoom meeting make sure your phone, laptop, tablet, etc doesn't show your full name - change it to just your first name. It's helpful for the host if you give it a name rather than just 'iPhone'.
Sponsoring people (this is guidance for 'mutual aid groups' issued by Public Health England: Only in exceptional circumstances should an individual sponsor visit a sponsee to provide 1:1 support at home. They should both then follow the same precautions as are required of essential services i.e. stay at least 2m apart in an adequately ventilated area, both wash hands, don't go if either party is showing any symptoms of the virus, don't visit people who are self-isolating because they have COVID 19 symptoms, don't visit those who are being shielded because they are highly vulnerable or if the sponsor themselves is from a vulnerable group.
