Intergroup has received a number of inquiries from members and groups concerning how we are responding and how they might respond to concerns with the challenge of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.

Keeping in mind that we are neither medical nor public health experts or officials, that Intergroup neither directs nor tries to shape specific home group activities or practices, and that the situation is evolving, we offer the following.

There is no need to panic or over-react, but prudence and faith are appropriate now as always
