COVID-19 Update (Novel Coronavirus)
COVID-19 is causing significant changes in the way aa-ers are meeting and organizing. But if there's anyone who can walk through drastic change, it's a stone-cold sober alcoholic for sure!
Please note that individual landlords (churches, community centers, nursing homes, etc) may choose to close their buildings to A.A. meetings on any given day, so it is possible you will arrive at a building and find that you cannot enter and that the meeting has been temporarily cancelled/suspended. The list below contains the most recent information that we have received. Many meetings have opened online platforms so that the meeting can continue in spite of closures. Check our meeting search for distance to each meeting from your current location, as well as online links and phone numbers for groups that are temporarily hosted virtually.
Please contact SEPIA via this form with all meeting changes and/or closures so we may keep the fellowship informed. Read how to set-up an online meeting to see what other groups are doing (and what they have learned).
