SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTION NO. 20-068, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CARSON, CALIFORNIA, CONCERNING PUBLICATION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA'S EMERGENCY ORDERS AND LAWS RESTRICTING RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) STATE OF EMERGENCY (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

To protect residential renters statewide from being evicted from their homes as a result of COVID-19, Governor Newsom has issued two executive orders.
Executive Order N-28-20, issued on March 16, 2020, waived the time limit of Penal Code Section 396(f) of 30 days from the date of declaration of a state of emergency for effectiveness of that section's protections against residential evictions, and instead provided that those protections shall be in effect through May 31, 2020.
Executive Order N-37-20, issued on March 27, 2020, imposed a statewide moratorium on residential evictions related to COVID-19, effective through May 31, 2020.
By adopting the proposed resolution (Exhibit 1), the City Council would direct City staff to take measures to publicize the passage of these strong statewide protections to the City's residents, in an effort to ensure the City's residents remain informed and can thereby protect their rights against the risk of eviction from their homes during the COVID-19 state of emergency.
