The AFL NEB is in the process of informing clubs about the proper precautions to take in the wake of the increased coronavirus threat.
All clubs have been banned from training and players are also not allowed to train in groups away from the club.
AFL NEB chief John O'Donohue said he would be informing the individual leagues of the evolving precautionary measures clubs should take.

"We are working through what measures clubs should be taking and they have been initially told they can't train," O'Donohue said.
"We will be meeting with leagues in the next few days and enforcing the community expectations and standards regarding coronavirus.
"That includes no group gatherings and we don't try to train under any guise and the importance of social distancing.
"It's up to the individual to co-operate because what we are dealing with is a lot bigger than footy."
The Border Mail understands some clubs have been told players face a $20,000 fine if they are found to be training as an organised group which includes wearing club colours.
"I haven't heard that," O'Donohue said.
Meanwhile the national online clearance system has been shutdown.
"It was just to prevent the movement of players with the uncertainty of when leagues were going to start."
