The worrying development follows hundreds of tennis players and staff recently flying into the city from abroad for the Australian Open.
Preliminary saliva swabs saw the pair test positive, leading to 41 other staff being placed in isolation.
On Monday, the Victorian health department revealed both had since tested negative.
