With Los Angeles hoping to celebrate another major sports title in a matter of days, the city might be paying a price for one earlier in the month. As the Lakers progressed through four rounds of playoffs, culminating in the NBA title on Oct. 11, the Los Angeles County Department of Health says it's highly that fans gathering to watch the games -- and then taking to the streets to celebrate -- played a role in the county's surge of COVID-19 cases. The Dodgers, who lead the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 in the best-of-seven World Series, have two chances to clinch their own title, the first coming Tuesday night in Game 6.
Local health officials are worried about a similar trend related to the Dodgers' World Series run, too.
