California Governor Newsom issued an Executive Order which allows local jurisdictions to enact eviction protection, as a result of a tenant’s medical expenses, loss of wages, layoffs or reduction of hours relating to COVID-19.
Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti issued an Emergency Public Order on March 15, 2020 barring residential evictions from tenants, “who are able to show an inability to pay rent related to the COVID-19 pandemic due to circumstances including lost work, taking care of children who attend the shuttered Los Angeles Unified School District, and health care costs incurred due to the coronavirus.” The Mayor’s order does make tenants pay back rent within six months after the indefinite emergency period expires.
Similar statutes have been enacted in Santa Monica, West Hollywood and other jurisdictions.
