Montgomery County Will Halt Evictions for a 15 Day Period

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads, Gov. Larry Hogan decided to issue a “Proclamation and Declaration of State of Emergency and Existence of Catastrophic Health Emergency – COVID-19,” according to the sixth district court of Maryland for Montgomery County Memorandum and Order.

The international outbreak of COVID-19 poses an impending danger to the welfare of Montgomery County residents. Judge Patritica Mitchell has ordered as of March 12 that “all eviction orders in Montgomery County are stayed for an initial of 15 period days, and subject to renewal in 15-day increments, until further notice from this court,” said in the order.
