COVID testing sites, labs proliferate amid easy money, lax oversight

Tents, storage units, trailers, a former barbershop, an old karate studio and worn-down suburban strip malls.

The locations are among the hundreds of sites nationwide where pop-up coronavirus testing vendors have set up shop in recent months, capitalizing on lax regulations, financial incentives and high demand for testing.

State officials have been warning residents to avoid unregulated sites. But many Americans – without free, quick and accessible alternatives for coronavirus testing – have rushed to the locations anyway.
