Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has instituted a temporary moratorium on residential evictions and filings for a period of sixty (60) days effective immediately.

According to a press release, "The entities subject to this order are instructed not to permit the issuance of termination or initiate evictions for non-payment of rent, and not to permit the imposition of late fees and other charges due to late or non-payment of rent in properties sponsored or funded by the entities during the term of this order."
