In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a residential tenant eviction moratorium is currently in place that prohibits all evictions of residential tenants through May 31, 2020, subject to certain limited exceptions.
On March 16, 2020, the City issued a Public Order that landlords may not evict a residential tenant if the tenant is able to show inability to pay Rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 27, 2020, the City Manager issued a Second Supplement to the Public Order that expands the scope of the moratorium on residential tenant evictions (except those necessary for public health and safety) and extends such moratorium through May 31, 2020. Among other things, the expanded provisions in that Public Order state that residential tenants do not have to show an inability to pay rent because of circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 2, 2020, the City Council adopted a resolution confirming the March 27, 2020 Second Supplement to the Public Order, issued by the City Manager. On April 3, 2020, the City Manager issued amended rules and implementation measures regarding the residential tenant eviction moratorium.
