King’s Lynn Town should know whether they are to have games suspended due to the coronavirus situation by late Friday afternoon.
The decision on whether the top four levels of the non-league pyramid will carry ahead with their fixtures this weekend is currently being discussed.
Nick Robinson, chairman of the BetVictor Isthmian League, revealed that the leading officials from the leagues in Steps One to Four, headed by the National League and going down through the National League North - in which Lynn play - and South and into the Isthmian, Southern League and Northern Premier Leagues, will arrive at a joint decision late in the day.
'The situation is that Steps One to Four all want to be singing off the same hymn sheet,' explained Robinson.
'I know that the National League (officials) will be meeting at 1.30pm this lunchtime, and I'm sure that a statement will be released to all the clubs, at the same time, later this afternoon.'
All Premier League games, EFL fixtures and matches in the FA Women's Super League and Women's Championship have been postponed.
The Premier League explained that action would resume on April 4, but only 'subject to medical advice and conditions at the time'.
