Due to the Coronaviruspandemic and our focus on the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, families, volunteers, and the entire community, Special OlympicsOhio has made the decision to extend the suspension of all in-person activities including practices, competition, and in-person social engagements until February 8th, 2021. We will continue to observe and evaluate the current COVID-19 climate, monitor the vaccination distribution, and make any further decisions and announcements toward the end of January.
