The Mayor first imposed the moratorium on March 18, to last for a period of 30 days. The Mayor issued Executive Orders extending the commercial eviction moratorium for 30-day periods on April 15, 2020, May 17, 2020, June 12, 2020, July 10, 2020, August 12, 2020, September 11, 2020, September 29, 2020, and November 25, 2020. The Order currently expires on January 31, 2021 or when the Board of Supervisors Ordinance, File No. 201056, becomes effective. The effective date for the ordinance is December 26, 2020, with the moratorium expiring on March 31, 2021, unless extended by the Governor.
