***UPDATE: On May 29, 2020 Governor Newsom signed Executive Order N-66-20 which extends the paragraphs relating to residential and commercial evictions in Executive Order N-28-20 by 60-days until July 28, 2020. This allows local governments to continue to halt evictions for renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of Rosemead Urgency Ordinance No. 994 states, “Should the Governor extend Order N-28-20, this Ordinance will continue automatically beyond May 31, 2020 to the date of the Governor’s extension, unless superseded.”

As such, Rosemead’s Eviction Moratorium is still in effect and in full force until July 28, 2020 or until the City chooses otherwise by a new ordinance. Please continue to check back for updates or call the Housing Division at 626-569-2153.***
