The Marin County Board of Supervisors plans to consider a resolution on March 24 that would prevent residents and business owners from being evicted because of a sudden loss of income tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. The moratorium would last until May 31.
Financial impacts include having a substantial loss of household income because of a business closure, a loss of work hours or wages, layoffs, or extraordinary out-of-the pocket medical expenses related to COVID-19. Also under the new resolution, a tenant would have up to six months to pay rent before losing their housing or commercial property.
COVID-19 is causing, and is expected to continue to cause, serious negative impacts on the Marin economy and to residents.
