Real said tests were conducted on the squad on Monday and that though Diaz was in "perfect health", he would be self-isolating at home.
Real, who trail Manchester City 2-1 from the first leg of their last-16 tie before the pandemic suspended the competition in March, are set to play the Premier League side in the second leg on Aug. 8 at the Etihad.
