To all referees
Further to inquiries from leagues and clubs about the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and unnecessary contact with others, the ongoing situation is being closely monitored.
For now the SFAI are recommending that the pre/post match handshake should be suspended until further notice, The MSL would like both teams to give a round of applause.at the halfway line or around the center circle
It is also advised that players/coaches use their own personal re-usable water bottles and not refillable ones being used by multiple persons.
The SFAI will be guided by any and all recommendations and advice from the HSE and FAI in relation to Covid-19, and wants to thank all for their co-operation on this matter.
