Long Lines Plague NYC Coronavirus Testing Sites

New Yorkers reported long lines at COVID-19 testing sites as cases rose across the city ahead of the holidays.

Sarah Digby recorded this video near Columbus Circle in Manhattan on Tuesday morning, December 21, soon after a clinic opened for testing. She told Storyful she estimated more than 150 people were waiting in line.

For four consecutive days, New York City broke its own daily positivity case rate record, officials said. Mayor Bill de Blasio said discussions were “ongoing” regarding the planned Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration, and that a decision about the event would be made by Christmas.
