The California Governor Gavin NewsomOn Thursday afternoon, the President signed an executive order extending authorization for local governments to halt evictions of commercial tenants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic until June 30, 2021.

The order also extends protections against excessive price increases for emergency supplies and medical supplies in the midst of the ongoing emergency response to the pandemic, which will be in place until September 4.

Newsom noted that the executive order comes as a result of the Legislature declaring its intent to protect residents from price hikes during states of emergency, as it did last March 4, 2020, when such a situation was proclaimed in California as a result of the threat of COVID-19.

He recalled that the March 4, 2020 State of Emergency Proclamation triggered certain protections against excessive price gouging set forth in Penal Code 396, and Executive Orders issued pursuant to the Emergency Services Act - including Executive Orders N-44-20 and N-78-20 - which have implemented further protections against price gouging.

He stressed that to combat the spread of COVID-19, support to ensure that all Californians maintain uninterrupted, reasonable access to medical and emergency supplies remains essential. 

He added that, in addition to the protections against excessive price increases provided by state law, numerous local jurisdictions have determined that promoting stability among commercial leases is necessary to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 and, therefore, have enacted restrictions on lease-related evictions.

Thus, pursuant to the provisions of Government Code section 8571, the Governor found that strict compliance with various statutes and regulations specified in this newly signed order would hinder or delay appropriate actions to prevent and mitigate the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

So, Gavin Newsom halts commercial evictions until June, evictions of commercial tenants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
