As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic sweeps across the United States, the livelihood of America’s working class is coming to an unexpected and unfortunate halt. While this freeze on everyday “normal” life is only temporary, depleting income from individuals and families who rely on it will greatly affect the ability to pay monthly bills, including rent. Without working, everyone from small businesses owners to bartenders are losing their chance to gain a paycheck to pay their monthly rent.

 

With each passing day, the Coronavirus is bringing new challenges for US citizens. The list is growing practically every few hours with public places being forced to close their doors to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. The fact that cities are protecting renters who cannot work during this extremely difficult time for our country is huge. Nobody should have to worry about losing the roof over their head due to an unexpected and unavoidable income loss.

 

Take a look at the list of the current cities who are implementing eviction moratoriums due to the Coronavirus pandemic:

While cities nationwide are putting in their best efforts to slow down Coronavirus (COVID-19), renters in these states listed above are being shown the compassion that they deserve during this bump in the road for our country and our economy. The extreme measures of keeping the public separated has unfortunately thrown the biggest wrench in our 2020 economy. Businesses from the top to the bottom are feeling it and will continue to feel it. This is when renters will turn to local and state officials working to get renters protected until they can get back on their feet.
