It also means Napoli will likely need to carry out tests of their squad before Sunday's clash with champions Juventus.
Sampdoria also confirmed on Monday that forward Keita Balde had tested positive for Covid-19 and will now follow the necessary health protocols.
The player is due to join Sampdoria from Monaco this week on loan.
