“The child remains in hospital and is receiving ongoing treatment.
“The McGowan family asks for privacy regarding this situation at this difficult time.”
Mr McGowan has three children – two teenage sons and a young daughter.
The Premier revealed on Wednesday he was isolating at home for seven days after being deemed a close contact.
He tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday.
“Yesterday I undertook another PCR test and the result came back positive,” Mr McGowan said.
“It is not surprising considering one of my family members is positive.”
The Premier said in accordance with health protocols he would continue to quarantine and work from home until at least next Thursday.
“I will continue to quarantine and work from home over this period,” he said.
