Governor Doug Ducey has issued an executive order that would delay evictions for all renters affected by the coronavirus Tuesday.

Renters who are quarantining due to COVID-19 or "are facing economic hardship" won't face eviction. The order will stay in effect for 120 days.

“Nobody should be forced out of their home because of COVID-19,” said Governor Ducey in a statement. “This order is about protecting public health and providing relief to families impacted by this virus — whether through sickness or economic hardship. This is the right thing to do to support Arizona families during their time of need and prevent the spread of COVID-19."
