COVID-19 Testing Lines Snake Through Times Square

Long lines were once more reported at COVID-19 testing locations across New York City on Tuesday, December 21, as the city grappled with surge in cases driven by the Omicron variant.

A total of 22,258 positive results — 10.39 percent of all tests given — were reported for Monday in New York State, according to official records.
