Saka has scored four goals and got four assists in 14 caps for England and was nominated for March's Premier League Player of the Month award for his fine performances for Arsenal.
He tweeted: "I am gutted to withdraw from the England camp but I have tested positive for Covid-19 and I will be isolating until I am negative.
"I'll be supporting the boys from home this weekend and I can't wait to be being back doing what I love soon."
On Wednesday, Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster was called up to the England squad for the first time since 2017.
