The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to extend a moratorium on evictions for both residents and small businesses for another month, in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, along with board Chairman Greg Cox, made the request, which was unanimously approved. The board first approved an eviction moratorium in late March, but the moratorium was set to expire May 31. It is now extended to June 30.
“By extending the moratorium, we are giving families and business owners another tool to assist in their recovery from the pandemic,” Fletcher said. “The Board of Supervisors did the right thing today.”
Cox said,”This is not an effort to provide free rent. It’s really an encouragement for tenants, landlords, to work together on a payment plan.”
Fletcher added that people who qualify for the moratorium have to prove economic hardship caused by the pandemic.
