On Monday, Gov. Ralph Northam announced a temporary statewide moratorium on eviction proceedings, which will remain in effect until Sunday, June 28. “Evictions were put on hold in mid-March while courthouses were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But, on May 17, the order to suspend nonemergency proceedings expired, allowing backlog eviction lawsuits to continue. The moratorium gives Northam’s administration time to implement a rent relief program for residents facing housing insecurity during the pandemic,” reported WTOP. (WTOP)
