California has had one of the more robust and far-reaching responses to the coronavirus. At the state level, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an order that allows local jurisdictions to pause evictions. Newsom also brokered a deal with major banks that will give mortgage holders a grace period in the event that they can’t make their payments.
Numerous local jurisdictions have also enacted their own policies. In Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an order barring evictions, and issued a rent freeze on the city’s hundreds of thousands of rent-controlled units.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed also issued a moratorium on residential evictions.
Numerous other communities in California — including Ventura County, San Diego, San Bernardino and others — have also either adopted eviction moratoriums or are considering them.
