Over the past few weeks, Kejriwal has been on a whirlwind election campaign and has visited Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
He was in Dehradun on Monday, addressing an election rally.
This is the first time that Kejriwal has tested positive for the viral disease.
Last year, after developing symptoms, he had gone into isolation and got himself tested, but tested negative.
