The 28-year-old all-rounder missed the drawn first Test in Rawalpindi due to a hamstring injury.
"Ashraf has tested positive for Covid-19 in his on-arrival test at the Karachi team hotel," the PCB said in a statement. "He will now undergo a five-day isolation."
The second Test starts on Saturday in Karachi.
He has so far played 13 Tests, scoring 632 runs with four half centuries and taken 22 wickets.
Fawad Ahmed, Australia's spin bowling consultant, also tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
The third Test is in Lahore from March 21-25. The tourists will also play three one-day internationals and a single T20I.
