Warner on Wednesday was ruled out of the second Test against India after failing to recover in time from the groin injury he sustained last month.
He will now look to make a comeback in the New Year's Test in Sydney.
Warner and fellow New South Wales cricketer Sean Abbott had travelled to Melbourne on Saturday in order to avoid the COVID-19 restrictions arising out of the recent outbreak in Sydney.
However, Cricket Australia said in the two players have been excluded from Australia's bio-secure bubble in Melbourne.
"While neither player has been in a specific hotspot as outlined by NSW Health, Cricket Australia's bio-security protocols do not allow them to rejoin the squad in time for the Boxing Day Test," CA said in a release.
The second Test between India and Australia begins December 26 in Melbourne and the hosts go into the Test with a 1-0 lead, having won the preceding day-night Test in Adelaide by eight wickets.
The remaining two Tests will be played in Sydney (January 7-11) and Brisbane (January 15-19).
