Gov. Walz announces halt to eviction proceedings amid coronavirus

 

March 24, 2020



Gov. Tim Walz announced Monday a ban on new eviction proceedings to prevent Minnesota landlords from removing people from their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

The governor said in a news conference call from self-imposed quarantine that landlords and financial institutions cannot start eviction proceedings during the state's peacetime emergency for the virus. Walz said halting evictions was necessary to slow the spread of the coronavirus and it would be "not only personally cruel, but counterproductive to what we're trying to do" if people did not have a home to stay in.
