At a Board meeting on March 23, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed Urgency Ordinance No. 2021-11 to continue the temporary prohibition on evictions of certain small-business commercial tenants financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This protection now continues through June 30. Protections for residential tenants were unchanged by the urgency ordinance and last through June 30. Ordinance No. 2021-11 supersedes Ordinance No. 2021-04.
On March 4, the Governor issued Executive Order N-03-21 (PDF), which extends, through June 30, the authority of local jurisdictions to suspend the evictions of commercial tenants for the non-payment of rent if the non-payment was a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As we make progress together toward ending the COVID-19 pandemic, many small businesses in our community are still struggling and need help,” said Supervisor Diane Burgis, Board Chair. “Today’s Board action will extend that helping hand for small businesses even as we continue to help eligible renters and landlords during this time. Let’s continue to work together to find resources and ways to move forward.”
