When Lauren Aghabozorgi got news that she had been in contact with somebody with COVID-19 on Jan. 2, she immediately went into isolation. But a couple of days later, she decided to confirm she had reason to quarantine. So she headed out for a PCR test at a nearby clinic in northern Montreal.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Oil prices slid for a second day on Friday, pressured by an unexpected rise in U.S. crude and fuel inventories while investors took profits after the benchmarks touched seven-year highs earlier in the week.

"The latest pullback is most likely due to a combination of pre-weekend profit-taking and the absence of fresh bullish catalysts," said PVM analyst Stephen Brennock, noting Thursday's bearish data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
