NEWCASTLE boss Steve Bruce has banned players and staff from shaking hands due to coronavirus fears.
The Toon chief is determined to take every precaution to prevent a possible outbreak at the club.
He said: "The ritual here is we shake hands every day, we have stopped that on the advice of the doctor.
"We have a superb doctor here and he will keep us informed, we are all glued to the TV and let’s hope it doesn’t get any worse in this country.
"In confined areas like we have got, like over Christmas we had a virus that wasn’t cornonavirs, you have to be careful, we are mindful of a bug sweeping through.
"We had four or five, you just have to stay at home. It is always something you are looking at."
Newcastle host Burnley at St James' Park on Saturday.
