Omega will operate with the following modifications to regular practices.

1)      Vendors have been/are being notified to restrict visits to essential business needs and all deliveries will be made at the loading dock with limited interaction.

2)      We will post signs at exterior doors advising visitors not to enter without prior approval and will include instructions to call and request permission if they feel their visit represents an essential business need.

3)      Several employees have already requested to be excused from work to support family.  As per the earlier posting we will support all such requests and will handle each circumstance on a case by case basis to authorize approved work from home (WFH) status, If WFH can not be authorized, employees will need to submit for regular PTO .  We will be reviewing our PTO policy this week, and hope to be able to offer some temporary modifications during this challenging time.

4)      We will likely be relocation select employees within the building to promote social distancing.  Work on the shop floor will also be spread out as much as practical for the same reason.

5)      We will be increasing the frequency of sanitization efforts.


Our number one priority is for the protection of our employees, their families and our community!

If you have any of the following symptoms or conditions, or have been in direct contact with anyone with these symptoms or who has been confirmed with the virus, please remain at home and notify us as soon as possible.

Symptoms include but are not limited to fever, any respiratory issues, coughing, runny nose. 

The CDC has also listed persons with the following serious diagnosed chronic health conditions to be at elevated risk and need to take extra precautions. 

These include heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.


We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented event. We are all in this together and as a community we will get through this. 

As long as guidelines and conditions allow we will strive to maintain safe and efficient operations.

Life must go on and productive activity can help to alleviate concerns and we need to support the overall economy and supply chain to the best of our ability.

If you are personally uncomfortable coming in to work, or need to support your family, we understand and will do what we can to support that decision. 

Initially we will adhere to standard PTO practices but we will be reviewing options to try and provide greater assistance should you not be able to work for any of the above reasons.
