Highland League secretary Rod Houston says they will be guided by the SFA and Scottish Government when it comes to continuing the season.
Earlier this week, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced lockdown measures in Scotland until the end of January.
Despite the tightening of restrictions, football has been allowed to continue for the time being.
However, with the leagues below the Premiership not required to test players and staff for Covid-19, some observers have expressed surprise the likes of the Highland League are still allowed to carry on.
Secretary Houston said: “This is not a debate of absolutes – it’s about judgement calls.
“All along we have taken advice from the Scottish FA and through them the Scottish Government.
“The current advice is to continue, the minute that advice changes we will take stock.
“We are subject to that level of governance and we don’t have an issue with it.
“We feel we have been kept well-informed throughout the whole year, we feel we have been well-advised throughout the whole year and we will continue to use those good offices to ensure we do what is best.”
The continuation of part-time football amid tougher lockdown measures was discussed on this week’s Northern Goal podcast:

It has taken a huge amount of work at all levels of football to allow the game to return in some form during the coronavirus pandemic.
Things have been no different in the Highland League and having started the 2020-21 season Houston believes clubs are keen to continue.
He added: “There are people at each and every club who have put in a lot of hard work to ensure the facilities are suitable and the appropriate processes are in place.
“That has been a massive undertaking by all Highland League clubs.
“It has taken a lot of work and commitment to get football back, albeit behind closed doors.
“I suspect they are not inclined to lose the benefit of that work by stopping just now unless circumstances dictate.”
When the Highland League season began on November 28, the 10 clubs in Moray and the Highlands were able to allow a limited number of supporters through the turnstiles.
Although all clubs are no playing behind closed doors, Houston believes the response to the Highland League’s return has been positive.
He said: “The overall response has been very positive and they have been delighted to get back to doing it.
“I completely understand people who are not directly involved wondering about it, which is why we’re subject to the governance we are.
“It’s not a case of we think we’re right and others are wrong – the balance of judgements right now is to continue playing, which is not a decision based on absolutes.”
