Beginning August 22, 2020 EO 2020-49 has some additional provisions which go into effect and change how the delay in writs of restitution will be handled.

  1. The tenant in order to qualify for a delay in the writ must continue to provide proof of hardship, but the hardship must be financial. Additionally, the tenant must prove that he applied for financial assistance and that he has submitted a payment plan to the Landlord.
  2. Beginning August 22, 2020, a COVID illness or need to quarantine will not alone be sufficient to delay the writ of restitution.
