CDC Order Temporarily Halts Certain Residential Evictions
Effective September 4, 2020 through December 31, 2020
In response to the community spread of the COVID19 virus, a moratorium on residential evictions for non-payment of rent was issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) effective September 4, 2020. You may read the full CDC order, and information about the order, including a link to a tenant affidavit, by clicking on the links below.
PLEASE NOTE: A landlord may still file an eviction action in this court. The Summons and Notice of First Claim Hearing will then be issued by the Clerk per normal procedures. At the First Claim Hearing the Court will take testimony from the tenant(s) under oath to determine if the CDC moratorium criteria are met; if the criteria are not met then the complaint for eviction will proceed to trial on that hearing date.
Landlords and tenants are strongly advised to seek legal advice regarding the requirements and applicability of the CDC moratorium order.
