The ban will be in effect up to, and including, Sunday March 29.
The ban will result in Highland's home match against Melrose on March 21 and away match against Ayr on March 28.
Highland 2nd XV Caledonia North Two clash against Ross Sutherland on March 21 has also been postponed.
Inverness Craig Dunain's Caledonia North Four clash against Aberdeen University Medics on Saturday is also off.
However, their match against North Police on Saturday, April 4 in Invergordon is still scheduled to go ahead.
A Scottish Rugby spokesperson said: “We have taken on board all expert medical advice before now and we are taking a precautionary approach to give time to assess what the impact of coronavirus will be on Scottish society in the coming weeks before deciding on next steps.
"This decision has been taken with the best interest of everyone involved in the game and in support of the country's work to address the impact of coronavirus."
