The Dodgers have arrived back in Los Angeles, landing at LAX yesterday evening after being mass-tested for COVID-19 as a team following Justin Turner's positive diagnosis.
Justin Turner, who is currently under investigation by the MLB, was not on the plane with his teammates, as arrangements were made for him and his wife to be flown back on a private plane.
According to KTLA, none of the other Dodgers tested positive for COVID on Wednesday — however, the wife of a Tampa Bay Rays player did, and she and her husband also could not travel back with the team.
The plane landed at LAX and the airport festively spouted some water over it, as a little "welcome home" celebration.

The plane full of winners is said to be COVID-19 free.
The entire #Dodgers team, with the exception of Justin Turner and his wife, were allowed to travel on the team plan… https://t.co/IPJ7LyIikJ— Bob Nightengale (@Bob Nightengale)1603925804.0
The airport is VERY proud to welcome back so many champions lately, and seems to be getting a big head about it.
Welcoming home world champions to LA is just so... routine https://t.co/e3NkwdC87d— LAX Airport (@LAX Airport)1603933351.0
And, apparently, when you win the World Series, you fly United.
