New York state is opening more than a dozen new COVID-19 testing sites in almost all 10 regions amid an omicron surge that has generated record-breaking virus numbers on a near-daily basis (and record testing) over the last week and a half.

Each of the 13 sites officially launches on Wednesday, Dec. 29. Appointments can be made right here starting Monday (note: the page will show up empty if you try to load it now so keep it handy until Monday morning if you want to schedule).

Days and hours of operation will vary depending on the site location. Each site will offer tests by appointment as well as walk-ins. Additional sites are planned as well.

Here's a full list of the to-be-opened locations by New York region (reminder, a number of MTA stations will start offering boosters and testing as well):
