New Yorkers Queue for COVID-19 Tests Following Thanksgiving

New Yorkers lined up for coronavirus testing on November 29 as the city braced itself for a potential uptick in positive cases after Thanksgiving.

This footage was taken on Sunday morning outside a CityMD location on the Upper West Side in Manhattan. The line for the facility can be seen snaking around Broadway, onto 104 Street.

New York State Gov Andrew Cuomo had discouraged New York residents from traveling or holding in-person gatherings around Thanksgiving.

After earlier closing public schools due to a rise in city-wide positive rates for the virus, Mayor Bill de Blasio reversed course on Sunday, announcing that in-person learning for grades 3-K through fifth would resume on December 7. Credit: Samuel Oakford via Storyful
