Thistle boss Stuart Davidson has backed the Scottish FA Board's decision for a three week suspension of professional football in the West of Scotland Premier Division.
Largs Thistle were due to play Hurlford United this Saturday in an all Ayrshire league clash but Monday's announcement has resulted in the game being shelved till February at the earliest.
Davidson said: "I think it is the right decision given that the virus has got a lot worse, and like at many other clubs, there had been concerns aired through the squad and with the coaching staff about whether it was right to keep on playing.
"We had been intending to have a meeting with players at training on Monday but the Scottish FA's decision took the matter out of our hands, and it is a bit of a relief to be honest.
"We will continue to carry out training via whatsapp with running activities for the players from home.
"It is important we take no chances for the players, their families and their health, and I trust the boys to do what is asked of them regarding their fitness and they will be back in action once they are allowed to do so."
Davidson also praised the club for keeping football going during the pandemic and making the football facilities at Barrfields as safe as possible during the season so far.
He said: "The club have done great - Ryan Scott as Covid19 officer (pictured below) in particular has been fantastic with all the protocols and all the rules and regulations you have to abide by to keep everyone safe.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
"There have been so many cases in Scotland and it was a bit of a risk and a worry and I think pausing the season now is important to prevent anything from getting through the net.
"We started the season in October when the curve appeared to be flattening and it was considered safe to play - the players had been stuck in for a long time and it has been a relief for them to have the opportunity to play but it comes to a point that your health comes first and hopefully it won't be too long and we will be back playing soon."
"I have said before the players are the lucky ones as they have grasped the opportunity to play - they have not taken it for granted and I think it has shown in their performances and the effort and I hope we get to continue to play at some point and finish the season. 
"The players have been growing and maturing, getting fitter, and have been gelling into a very good side. They are improving all the time, and from turning up to training to applying themselves on the pitch, the players have all had a great attitude and I can't praise them enough.
"The boys all feel safe enough at the club but there is always that concern at the back of your head when you are watching the news and seeing the numbers rise and people being told to stay at home, so it makes sense to put the season on hold.
The break in play also gives Thistle players such as Stuart Forbes and Keir Milliken with the opportunity to recover from injury. Stuart pulled out in the warm-up to the Beith game with a leg injury, while Keir Milliken suffered a shoulder ligament injury in training.
With Barrfields like an ice rink last week, players were already training from home, and with no competitive action since the Beith game, it means that Largs will be out of league action for six weeks at least.
While the updated Scottish Government guidance permits the continuation of professional sport, the Scottish FA considered the implications of doing so at all tiers of the Scottish football professional pyramid, against a backdrop of increased positive cases across the country.
In particular, the board gave extensive consideration to making a decision in the interests of public health, taking cognisance of the government’s wish to reduce travel and possible contact with others whilst safeguarding commercial broadcasting contracts that sustain the professional game.
Following a meeting between the Scottish FA and the Minister for Public Health Sport and Wellbeing, both parties agreed to impose a temporary suspension of all football beneath the Scottish Professional Football League Championship, encompassing all predominantly part-time tiers of the Scottish professional pyramid.
The suspension will be for three weeks, until 31st January, and will be reviewed on a rolling basis by the Scottish FA Board in partnership with Scottish Government.
Rod Petrie, Scottish FA President: “The Scottish FA is well aware of the efforts all clubs take to comply with the exacting protocols that were conditional on elite football being given an exemption to continue amid the pandemic.
“None the less the continuation of football at all levels has weighed increasingly heavy on me as President, my colleagues on the board and the Joint Response Group as we have watched the new strain of the virus spread rapidly.
"While the national sport has been afforded the privilege of elite sporting exemption, the risk of mass transportation of untested, largely part-time players is something that cannot be sustained as the cases continue to rise and available hospital beds become increasingly scarce.
"The risk is currently too great amid the developing nationwide spread of the virus."
