2020 has been weird for all of us to say the least, and it got weirder last night during the World Series, as L.A. Dodgers Third Baseman Justin Turner was pulled from the World Series in the 7th inning after testing positive for Covid-19.
Not even a positive Covid-19 test would keep Turner away from “turning-up” with his teammates after winning the World Series. Both ESPN’s Jeff Passan and FOX’s Ken Rosenthal say that Turner went back onto the field and nobody stopped him.
The answer is he went back out and nobody stopped him. He was asked to isolate and didn’t. https://t.co/AFyWN0Xt0b

Turner was seen hugging Clayton Kershaw and sitting next to Dave Roberts for the team photo.
The Dodgers third baseman sent a tweet saying he felt “great” and had “no symptoms.”
Thanks to everyone reaching out! I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine. Can’t believe I couldn’t be out there to celebrate with my guys! So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA#WorldSeriesChamps

You might be asking yourself why was Turner on the field for the first seven innings in the first place? It was due to his test on Monday was inconclusive. That is why he was able to play the first seven innings of the Dodgers’ 3-1 win, it was when the MLB learned that he in fact tested positive, that is when he was removed from the game.
