Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner learned during Game 6 of the World Series that he tested positive for COVID-19 and still celebrated with the team.

This statement clearly puts the onus on Turner. We’ll see how long the investigation takes. My guess is that the league will announce a punishment for Turner once this incident has receded to the back of our minds.
