Latics' players must keep focused on their job of winning more football games.
All of Oldham Athletic's matches are postponed until at least the 3rd of April.
They were meant to be hosting Swindon Town tomorrow (14th March).
It comes after the English Football League has made the decision as a precautionary measure to protect players and staff from the spread of coronavirus.
It means that no games will take place between clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two.
This also affects other local clubs in Greater Manchester like Rochdale.
All professional football in England has been postponed which includes all Premier League, Football League, FA cup and Women's Super League fixtures.
The Latics have released this statement on their website:
"Oldham Athletic supports any decision which ultimately ensures the safety of supporters, staff and players above anything else, and prevents the spread of the virus.
"Further information on day-to-day club business and activities, will follow in due course, following review and will include additional information regarding rescheduled dates, tickets and other match details.
"Once fixtures resume it is important to stress that those who wish to attend but are still showing signs of the symptoms are to stay away from the ground and self-isolate as per government protocol for a week."
