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.”

Current advice is similar to preparing for other viruses:

Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-South Bay, helped hand out roughly 800 turkeys Tuesday morning, Nov. 26, to local families at the Lennox Academy, in Inglewood, as part of the fifth annual Project Gobble. The assemblywoman, along with the Lennox Coordinating Council, led the event — sponsored by local businesses and associations — to supply the turkeys on a first-come, first-served basis at the charter school.

Francis Sanchez, who lives just a few blocks away, said the free turkey will make a big difference for her son on Thanksgiving.

“My son has always had it hard and we don’t get to cook as much as we would like,” Sanchez said, “so having this turkey is going to make a lot of memories for him.”
