Hundreds Wait in Line at LaGuardia Airport COVID Test Site

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

Andrew Gross said he recorded this video on Monday morning, December 20, at the testing line in LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal B parking garage. He said there were “200 people waiting in line less than 2 hours after it opened, waiting for tests from two vans.”

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