Editor’s note: This message comes from Dyana Kelley, executive director of the CampCalNOW RV Park and Campgrounds (CampCalNOW).

April 1 is just around the corner, and with no end to the “shelter in place” moratorium, parks are now faced with monthly rents and evictions.

As of 1 p.m. Friday (March 27), Gov. Newsom has built on his previous executive order authorizing local governments to cease COVID-19 related evictions and has extended the moratorium to the entire state through May 31.

What does this mean?

Tenants MUST declare in writing to the landlord, no more than seven days after the rent comes due, that the tenant(s) cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19. A tenant would be required to retain documentation, but are not required to submit it to the landlord in advance. Additionally, the tenant would remain obligated to repay full rent in “a timely manner” and could still face eviction after the enforcement moratorium is lifted.

The order takes effect immediately. I have been in contact with Dan Rudderow from our legal team who has put together guidelines to help us all navigate these ever-changing circumstances, linked below.
