New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday changes to both the COVID-19 clusters within the state and the travel policy now that its main regional partners meet the criteria for being on the travel advisory list. However, there was another change related to the coronavirus that he found troublesome.

However, now as the health crisis will soon enter its eighth month in the U.S., he said he now see that fatigue is causing other health and societal issues.

“Now you have this overwhelming emotional sense and people are feeling it, and it is worrisome to me. … We see it in the numbers,” he said. “You see it in substance abuse. You see it in domestic violence. You see it in the number of people calling for mental health treatment.”

For most of the last 234 days, Cuomo would end his opening statements saying a phrase that began with “New York tough.” On Wednesday, tough was the last of the qualities he mentioned.
