They said: "As faith leaders in Scotland, along with others we are concerned about the spread of the Coronavirus. We therefore invite everyone in our society to be safe themselves, and respectfully remind everyone of their responsibility to others for their health and wellbeing.
"We also agreed that society thrives when we look after each other, and so we urge everyone to follow guidelines from the health authorities and we invite people to look out for those who are especially vulnerable and those who are isolated at this time."
