Long lines back up traffic for miles at testing site in Rock Hill, South Carolina

Long lines last seen at the height of the pandemic this past winter are back as thousands of people across the Charlotte area are lining up again to get tested for COVID-19.

For more than a year, Channel 9 has followed the ups and downs at one site at Winthrop University in Rock Hill. South Carolina reporter Greg Suskin has been covering the testing site during that time but said on Monday that he has never seen the lines as long as they are now.

Eden Terrace was essentially blocked off because there was so much traffic with everyone waiting to get into the coliseum parking lot for their free COVID test.

Two weeks ago, Suskin reported that testing at the site had gone from only 20-25 people a day in the spring to 400 a day.

Genetworx, the healthcare company that does the outdoor testing at Winthrop, now says they are back up to 1,200 people a day. The crowds are so big that some people have complained about wait times as long as 90 minutes to two hours.

“It’s necessary but it’s ridiculous,” one person in line told Channel 9. ‘They should have more tents. At least set up more places.”

Hundreds of people line up in Rock Hill to be tested for COVID-19 at Winthrop University on August 30, 2021.

Genetworx said it has added more tents and doubled the staff last month, when COVID cases started to climb again.

Many of the people in line told Channel 9 they have kids out of school on quarantine and they’re trying to get them back in class.
