Dupont, who tested positive on Friday, was left off the list of 31 players available for their game in Paris next Sunday.
It's also been confirmed that hooker Julien Marchand and centre Arthur Vincent have returned positive tests, taking the number of cases in the camp to nine.
Their coach Fabien Galthie also tested positive since their win over Ireland at the Aviva Stadium last Sunday.
