Dozens Wait for COVID Tests in New York's Times Square

New Yorkers stood in long lines to get tested for COVID-19 on Monday, December 27, as case numbers in the city continued to balloon.

Videos posted on Twitter by Rob Swanda on Monday morning showing two lines for testing in Times Square. Swanda told Storyful he shot the videos around 9:30 am.

From Monday, private businesses in the city were required to ensure employees had at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine – a measure Mayor Bill de Blasio called the “largest private sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate in America.” Credit: Rob Swanda via Storyful
