REGIONAL STAY AT HOME ORDER

The State’s Regional Stay At Home Order is in effect in Santa Clara County as of Sunday December 6, 2020. Residents are required to stay at home as much as possible and minimize mixing to reduce unnecessary exposure, while still being able to do important things like go to the doctor, buy groceries, pick up take out, go on a hike, or worship outdoors. K-12 schools that are already open can remain open and retailers can operate indoors at no more than 20 percent capacity to reduce exposure risk.

EVICTION MORATORIUM INFORMATION FOR LANDLORDS AND TENANTS

  • For small business tenants who qualify for protection under the County’s ordinance, the County’s eviction moratorium has been extended through March 31, 2021. Small business tenants have up to 6 months after the moratorium expires or terminates to repay at least 50% of the past-due rent, and up to 12 months after the moratorium expires or terminates to repay in full the past-due rent. Civil fines and penalties, monetary damages and injunctive relief may be imposed on landlords who seek to retaliate or deny small business tenants of their rights and protections under the ordinance.
