If anyone was watching the World Series you'd notice that Justin Turner (great hitter all series) disappeared in the middle of Game 6. Was he hurt? Did something happen?
Post game on Fox:
Justin Turner came out of the game because of a positive test for COVID-19, per Fox.

I'm assuming he didn't get a rapid test during the game and that he was therefore playing all game (and maybe prior games?) with the virus after being tested. Perhaps the results weren't back? ... but they came back late evening during the game? *eye roll here
I'm also assuming the Dodgers won't be giving their World Series trophy back.
So - if I'm right and it plays out that way - the playbook is about to be written on what to do with star players who might have Covid when you need them to win playoff games, i.e., go ahead and win and apologize later.
EDIT/Update: (Turner left the game in the 8th I believe)
In the second inning tonight, the lab doing COVID tests informed MLB that Justin Turners test from yesterday came back inconclusive. The samples from today had just arrived and were run. It showed up positive. The league immediately called the Dodgers and said to pull Turner.
