Given the life-saving work of Alcoholics Anonymous, AA should be regarded as an essential service and its meetings still be open to its members.
Otherwise many alcoholics and other addicts will get back on the booze and drugs.
Surely members being able to attend  meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous is of more importance than being allowed to attend the hairdresser!
