RENTAL AND MORTGAGE RELIEF Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order that authorizes local governments to halt evictions for renters and homeowners, slows foreclosures, and protects against utility shutoffs for Californians affected by COVID-19.
The order does not relieve a tenant from the obligation to pay rent or restrict the landlord’s ability to recover rent that is due. The protections are in effect through May 31, 2020, unless extended.

The following link is from the EDD regarding the Corona Virus and Disability or Paid Family Leave Benefits. If you know of someone that can benefit from this information please share this link with them, it answers a lot of questions they may have:

You can dial 211 anytime, anywhere to get up to date information on resources available to you today. Also, crisis counselors are ready to talk, should you need their help.
