The Dodgers just got done releasing a statement today on the Justin Turner situation at the World Series. They released one along with MLB and JT himself as the investigation came to a close. And now, we’re finding out more about the testing done by the organization as a whole.
USA Today is reporting now that 5 members of the Dodgers organization have tested positive for COVID-19. The report did not specify if those test results were found with everyone being tested due to JT being on the field during the World Series celebration.
It’s unclear at this point which members tested positive, but the original report suggests it was 5 members of the organization that were not in the bubble. There was also a Dodgers organization family member that tested positive according to that same report. The report also does not mention whether Justin Turner was included among the 5 organization members listed by the Los Angeles Department of Health.
The results come just 10 days after the World Series celebration, though it’s likely not possible to link the two directly. If the Dodgers did have people in the organization that were outside of the bubble, it seems odd that they would be able to have any contact with the team or with family members. More on this to come as it continues to develop.
Update: It looks as though the members tested were never in Texas with the team at all. The report from USA Today seems to indicate that the members tested were simply a part of the Dodgers organization as a whole and makes no mention of employees that were in Texas with the team.
