Barty, who only last week lifted her maiden Wimbledon trophy, is hoping to continue the momentum and add an Olympic gold medal to her kitty.
So far, four athletes have tested positive for Covid-19 inside the Olympic village - including three from South Africa and one from Japan.
However, Chesterman emphasised that Australia has not instructed their athletes to keep away from athletes of a particular country.
