Los Angeles County extended the pandemic-based eviction moratorium, days before it was set to expire.
With the original January 31 date looming, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted on a two month extension, keeping renters from being evicted, or subject to rent increases until at least March 31.
“Three years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still seeing the impacts of the pandemic on our community,” Supervisor Lindsey Horvath said during Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. “COVID is not over. People are still getting sick, they’re still out of work, they’re still losing jobs and unfortunately still dying from COVID. The protections before us today will keep L.A. County residents safer and healthier. They keep our communities functioning, and thriving and stable.”
