Remove Covid-19 restrictions on support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous

Petition Details

Classify support groups such as Alcoholic Anonymous as essential services, and lift restrictions on the number of people who can attend these groups due to Covid-19, which is causing people in desperate need to be turned away. This is potentially a life-threatening situation for attendees.

Additional Information

Allow support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous to meet in numbers of 30 or more. To help save lives and maintain the mental health of people who need support, including sufferers of alcoholism, so as to avoid relapse and a potential rise in fatalities.
