What eviction ban extension means for Pima County renters, landlords

The moratorium continues through October in areas with high COVID-19 transmission rates.

Arizona renters who couldn’t make payments because of the pandemic now have until October before facing a possible eviction. This week the Biden administration extended a nationwide eviction moratorium that had expired at the end of July. The extension only applies to areas with high COVID-19 transmission rates which currently covers the entire state. Daniel Sullivan, who oversees the Tucson and Pima County Eviction Prevention Program, discussed what that means for renters and landlords in the area and what resources are available.
