France's Six Nations squad are currently in isolation after three members of the management team tested positive for coronavirus - including head coach Fabien Galthie - earlier this week.
Assistant coach William Servat became the third member of staff to test positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday, with one other unnamed person having returned a positive test.
Galthie initially recorded 'an unproven case' and was re-tested on Tuesday, with that test coming back positive.
France lead the Guinness Six Nations Championship following victories over Italy and Ireland. Their next game is against Scotland in Paris on February 28.
