Lodi and nine other Atletico Madrid players did a COVID-19 test on Wednesday, but only the Brazilian test result came back positive on Friday.
The 22-year-old will have to stay in quarantine for the next ten days before doing another test and then potentially joining back up with his teammates.
He has been one of Diego Simeone’s best players at Atletico so far this season.
Lodi joined the La Liga giants from Athletico Paranaense in 2019.
