The Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation (CADF) has changed its testing programme and procedures due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It made the decision to ensure it remained in line with Government measures in impacted countries and kept up with guidelines from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which has also updated its procedures.
Last week, WADA stated that it will only continue to conduct tests where necessary and appropriate due to the potential for testers to contract or spread coronavirus.
There is also a focus towards the Athlete Biological Passport and targeted testing based on any intelligence received.
The CADF has said that where testing can take place, priority will go to those in the International Cycling Union (UCI) Registered Testing Pool (RTP).
Cyclists in the RTP are also still required to inform the anti-doping authorities of their whereabouts.
In a statement, the CADF said: "For all tests, the safety measures are reinforced to protect the health of cyclists, their entourage and Doping Control Officers in accordance with WADA guidelines.
"The CADF will continue to liaise with the UCI, WADA and the anti-doping community to remain abreast of the latest information and health protocols in order to maintain an effective anti-doping programme in light of the current situation."
The CADF will base its modified testing programme on which international races have been cancelled or postponed, the countries identified as high-risk by the World Health Organization and which WADA-accredited laboratories have suspended their activities.
Mandated by the UCI since 2008, the CADF is an independent entity overseeing cycling's anti-doping programme.
From 2021, the UCI has agreed to transfer the running of its anti-doping programme to the International Testing Agency.
