SunSport understands that there are four players and some staff who were involved in the 1-0 win at Norwich City that tested positive for Covid on Sunday.
They were sent home to self isolate and will not be able to return to Carrington until next Tuesday.
The club will now decide as to whether to appeal to the Premier League to have Saturday’s home game against Brighton called off based on the new test results.
If any more players are found to be positive then that game will be in jeopardy.
Brighton themselves have had a small Covid outbreak in their camp which has also threatened their game against Wolves on Wednesday night.
United had their game postponed after they appealed to the Premier League, claiming they had not been able to train properly and would only travel to Brentford on the day of the game.
However, if no new tests come through and the outbreak has been contained they will train as normal from Wednesday.
They could promote some Academy players into the first team squad to make up for the absentees and there is also the possibility of Edinson Cavani returning from injury.
Meanwhile, Victor Lindelof is wearing a heart monitor and sitting out training after leaving the field during the Norwich game with breathing difficulties.
His wife Maja Milsson has revealed on social media what a traumatic experience it had been.
She wrote on her blog: “It was a scary match to watch and Victor was very upset afterwards.
“He did a lot of tests and has a heart monitor on for two days to make sure everything is OK.
“It was a long time before I got hold of someone on the team who updated me.
“Everything seems to be okay as luck would have it and we are waiting for answers to the last tests.”
The club say Lindelof’s problems were not related to Covid.
A club statement said: “Victor is currently undergoing a series of precautionary investigations.
“However, he has recovered well from the episode he experienced in the match against Norwich.
“All indications are that this is not linked to any Covid outbreak within the club.”
