Canadian truck driver Nicole Folz began suspecting she had COVID-19 as she prepared to make her final less-than-truckload delivery in South Carolina last week, some 14 hours from home in Ontario.
The sore throat and dry cough she noticed after she crossed into the U.S. had gotten worse. A thermometer she purchased confirmed she had a fever of 101.3 on April 8. Breathing became harder, too. And she had lots of pain.
