In accordance with the federal CARES Act, a moratorium on evictions is in effect for 120 days (March 27, 2020 to June 24, 2020). This moratorium applies to the Public Housing and Section 8 (Housing Choice Voucher and Project Based Voucher) programs.

HUD also issued a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about this moratorium. This information may be helpful to landlords of tenants assisted though the Section 8 program.
** Please note that individual cities and the County may have implemented their own moratorium on evictions that may apply to the unit you live in or own. Please refer to those entities for further information on their requirements.**

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the important links listed below for information on COVID-19. As a reminder, the best ways to prevent the spread of respiratory infections include:
- Staying home if you are sick. Sick people make well people sick.
- If you have mild symptoms, there may be no need to go to a medical facility or to see a doctor.
- If you have questions, please call the clinic or your doctor before going in. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call the County’s Helpline, 211, for assistance finding support near you.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Get immunized against the flu to protect yourself and your family, and reduce the potential strain on the healthcare system, which may be impacted by COVID-19 concerns.
