Cuomo says NYS could go back on PAUSE if hospitals become overwhelmed

While Governor Andrew Cuomo covered a lot of ground in his updates to the state on Monday and Tuesday, one of the most-significant was renewed concern over widespread shutdowns.

Among the biggest changes announced on Monday was new hospitalization procedures, as well as a way for hospitalization to be accounted for in the state’s consideration of economic restriction.

“Literally every region is dealing with a hospital issue now,” Cuomo said. He said the state could go back on PAUSE if hospitals become overwhelmed.
