KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Glenn Crocker of Overland Park was looking for answers.
Is it possible that he already had COVID-19 and just didn’t know it? Maybe he is the one, in some infectious but asymptomatic way, who had passed the coronavirus on to his 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, and forced her into quarantine in her room.
It was April, about a week after Elizabeth’s 16th birthday. Then a sophomore at Blue Valley North High School, she had developed the hallmark dry cough, a slight fever. The Crocker family, Glenn and his wife, Tepring, their eldest child, Ben, and Elizabeth, had all been vigilant, wearing masks and social distancing.
