It will be a sombre atmosphere in the streets of towns across Victoria on Good Friday.
The CFA is advising against fundraising activity involving direct contact with the public.
This includes street and door-to-door collection as part of the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Koroit CFA captain Leigh Mugavin said the safety of CFA members and the general community were behind the decision.
"We are very disappointed, we were getting things ready to go," Mr Mugavin said.
"But we have to put first the safety of both the public and our members.
"We need our members to be fit and ready to respond to emergencies so we can't take risks in these extraordinary circumstances."
A spokesperson from CFA headquarters said the Good Friday Appeal had been a part of CFA life for decades.
"We know the Good Friday Appeal is close to the hearts of many at CFA and we are encouraging the community to give whatever they can to this worthwhile cause," the spokesperson said.
"CFA is continuing to work with the team at the Good Friday Appeal to provide members with alternative means of fundraising, such as online appeals."
