Center For Disease Control – Order Preventing Residential Evictions

 

Tenants can invoke the protections under the CDC Order only if they  give their landlord a signed declaration and truthfully state that they are unable to pay their rent, have tried to obtain rental assistance, have made their best efforts to pay partial rent, have either received a stimulus payment or will make less than $99,000 this year, and eviction might leave the tenant homeless or forced into a group living situation. (See Declaration Form below)
