Update to CA rent relief and COVID-19 hardship eviction protections
Important eviction update from the SLO Legal Assistance Foundation: On March 31, 2022, California extended some protections for tenants who are facing eviction for unpaid rent.
Through June 30, 2022, tenants who completed an application for rent relief on or before March 31, 2022 cannot be evicted for unpaid rent that was due before April 1, 2022. Additionally, tenants who have been approved for rent relief but are still waiting for the money to be disbursed by the state can ask the court to stop an eviction for unpaid rent due before April 1, 2022. Tenants who are eligible for these and other eviction protections must still file a response to an eviction lawsuit within 5 court days of being served.
Tenants can contact SLO Legal Assistance Foundation at (805) 543-5140 or at email@example.com for help filing a response to an eviction lawsuit.
COVID-19 Vaccine for Ages 5+
A COVID-19 vaccine is now available for everyone ages 5 and up. It is a two-dose vaccine, given three weeks apart. Children are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose. It's really important for children to get vaccinated. You can help by reminding parents to do this. Download a SLO County Public Health information guide for parents in English or Spanish and hand it out to families.
Vaccines are offered at Public Health Clinics, mobile and pop-up events, and local pharmacies. Learn more here: www.slopublichealth.org/covid19
