Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday evening issued an executive order to help prevent evictions during the coronavirus outbreak.
The order gives local governments the authority to halt evictions for renters and homeowners but stops short of creating a statewide moratorium. The order also aims to slow foreclosures and help keep utilities running for residents affected by COVID-19.
“People shouldn’t lose or be forced out of their home because of the spread of COVID-19,” Newsom said in a statement. “Over the next few weeks, everyone will have to make sacrifices – but a place to live shouldn’t be one of them. I strongly encourage cities and counties take up this authority to protect Californians.”
