The actor, 58, is said to have spent a day filming with four female dancers as they shot scenes in a night club for the upcoming movie, who later tested positive.
Filming of the new instalment has been taking place at Longcross Studios in Chertsey, Surrey – production has now been halted and the 60-member team is now self-isolating, according to The Sun.

Ten crew members have also reportedly tested positive since and it is understood the actor has had to isolate since Tuesday.
A source told the publication: ‘Tom is absolutely fuming about what’s happened, especially given his rant to his staff last year.
‘It’s going to badly affect filming and they’ll be playing catch-up when they finally come back.
‘Fourteen crew members have got Covid — most of them are close aides of Tom’s. The whole shooting crew, about 60 people, have all had to self-isolate for 14 days.’

The crew had been filming in Yorkshire earlier this year but have more recently been shooting scenes on the outskirts of London.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Tom for a comment.
Mission: Impossible 7 filming has been hit with several set backs and delays amid the Covid pandemic, with it shooting on location in Italy, the UK and Norway.
And in December it was reported that five crew members had quit after Tom launched into two rants.

The actor was said to have given staff a dressing down after he caught them breaking UK Covid rules at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire.
A source claimed after news of the first outburst was made public, there was ‘more anger’ at the already ‘tense’ production.
An insider said: ‘Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked.
‘But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him.’
They added that it was Tom who feels responsible for the production after putting so much time and money into ensuring precautions are in place so the team can film.
It was previously reported that the Hollywood star scolded workers who flouted social distancing rules while filming at Warner Bros. Studios.
MailOnline contacted Tom’s representatives for further comment at the time.
It comes after last month Tom reportedly had to call security to deal with trespassers breaking into the huge Mission: Impossible 7 set in Yorkshire.
The movie had been filming in the village of Stoney Middleton in Derbyshire, with the movie using Darlton Quarry for some of the stunt scenes.

A source told The Sun that because the area was so large, it had been difficult to seal it off and stop daredevil’s from trying to climb the production’s equipment.
They explained: ‘So trespassers have been getting in and attempting to scale the rigs and equipment set up for the stunts.
‘Police were called to one incident last week and then Tom was forced to take action when it happened again.
‘Extra security might have to be drafted in… Along with it being a safety nightmare, Tom and the team don’t want any delays to filming.’
The second incident mentioned by the source reportedly involved two intruders ‘clambering’ all over the set, however security were on site to get them off.
MailOnline contacted Tom Cruise’s representative for further comment at the time.
Mission: Impossible 7 is currently slated for release on May 27, 2022, with Mission: Impossible 8 expected to follow on July 7, 2023.
