Dodgers’ coronavirus cases separated from World Series bubble


Five members of the Dodgers organization have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.A person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to speak officially said none of the five positive tests came from people inside the Dodgers’ playoff bubble in Texas last month, where the player third baseman Justin Turner tested positive and was sent off during the World Team Series win on October 27

The new tests were reported on Friday on the Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 tracking website, although the website said the information was valid until Thursday evening. He also noted that a family member linked to the organization had also tested positive.

None of those who tested positive have been identified by the county and it is not known how they contracted the virus. A spokesperson for the Dodgers declined to comment.

The news came on the same day Major League Baseball announced that Turner would not face any disciplinary action for his decision to return to the field after the Dodgers’ World Series victory at Globe Life Field in Arlington, in Texas, and join in the post-game celebration. .
