The demand for COVID-19 testing is increasing in South Florida as the omicron variant spreads across the state and nation.
Long lines of residents trying to get tested for COVID-19 were seen in both Miami-Dade and Broward counties as families gathered for the holidays, with some reporting waiting in lines for hours at a time.
Officials have begun to expand testing as Florida has seen consecutive days of record-breaking cases for new infections.
Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced plans to open several new testing sites and the distribution of at-home testing kits at dozens of public libraries across the county.
