Long lines for coronavirus test are unreasonable | READER COMMENTARY

Having an appointment for a COVID-19 test is no guarantee of getting a test (”Delays in COVID-19 testing have gotten ‘outrageous,’” Nov. 22).

My husband and I had a appointment with the Cecil County Health Department for a test. Upon arriving at the testing site, we found the line stretching around the parking lot and down the block. The wait was at least an hour. We have no travel plans that require a test, so we just left. This is truly outrageous.
