OMAC Response to COVID-19

OMAC Family:

On March 15, 2020, the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, took the extraordinary step to close all bars and restaurants, restricting them to delivery and take out only. He came to this decision after people all over the state sent him photos and stories of crowded bars Saturday night despite the warnings of social distancing and the governor’s edict limiting crowds to no larger than 100 people.

Governor DeWine made this decision “Based upon all of this and based upon the fact of where we are at this point, in this pandemic — we are literally at a crucial, crucial, crucial stage”. Social Distancing is the best practice aside from frequent hand washing, for limiting the spread of Covid 19, and all Ohioans are being asked to do their part to reduce the need for our health services.

In response to this new development, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy, Supreme Grandmaster Choi has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all classes for at least two weeks beginning Monday March 16th, 2020. This will affect all branches. Your contract will be extended for the length of this closure. This is being done with the health of the families of our students as the priority in this time of state and national crisis. You are all encouraged to practice at home. We are working to provide links for you to access your requirements online. Thank you; and keep healthy and happy. "Bek Gel Bulgool - Indomitable Spirit"
