Seven members of the Scotland playing and management staff are in self-isolation.
The men’s match at Murrayfield on Sunday will go ahead.
Scotland women’s last game, in Italy, was called off over coronavirus fears.
Dr James Robson, Scottish Rugby’s chief medical officer said, “We are pleased that our player is doing well and that all the correct medical procedures have been followed and continue to be followed.
“We are working with the Scottish Government in continuing to observe and follow NHS advice.”
