Several in-person meetings that have been closed due to COVID-19 will be switching to Zoom, a virtual video communication service. You can download Zoom on your computer via Zoom.com, download as an app on your iPhone or Android, or dial in on your phone.
OA ZOOM GUIDELINES:
Suffolk Intergroup states that being on camera is a suggestion, not mandatory.
There should be no multitasking or eating while attending a Zoom meeting.
Remember to practice Anonymity by removing your last name from your Zoom.
OA World Service has asked us to remind members not to share their screens or take screenshots containing OA Literature.
