Rock concert tickets? No, these long lines for COVID-19 testing in Worcester

WORCESTER - Father and son, Dave and Jack Randlett of Holliston, brought chairs to the COVID-19 testing line at the Mercantile Center on Monday.

WORCESTER — Before COVID-19 guidelines put a halt to large gatherings, popular concerts or sporting events were usually preceded by long ticket lines, with people camping out for hours and weathering the elements.

These days, some of the most crowded lines are for COVID-19 testing. 

On Monday, some of the first people in line for free testing at the Mercantile Center had been waiting for three hours by the time testing began at 11 a.m.

Some of the people at the front of the line had experienced long waits before – and this time they decided to come extra early to beat the crowd.
