Regardless of what platforms people might want to use for virtual meetings, it is my personal opinion that all movement organizations, groups (formal and informal) and the WMF itself immediately stop meeting in person. For the movement entities that have offices, work-from-home should be the standard (as it has been for the WMF for almost a week). Edit-a-thons and similar meet-ups should be cancelled for the foreseeable future. The broad movement has spent a lot of time talking about the safety and security of its communities, and this level of social distancing at this time is probably the best way to demonstrate that we really mean what we say. #CancelEverything is not just a cute hashtag - it's really serious, and our movement can be leaders in showing how it is done.
I'm speaking from my own experience (having worked in a hospital with SARS patients and having participated in the development of pandemic plans for hospitals), so perhaps my perspective is different from other people's. But given there's very little downside to this proposal, there's no reason not to take these steps, at least for a few months while the world has a better sense of how this will all play out.
