Early Childhood OC
Early Childhood OC, a community collaborative, offers tips for families to manage children’s anxiety and stress surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19).

They shared the following message:

We need to think about our young children during this time of uncertainty. Young children are more susceptible to the stress of the pandemic due to the change in routine, change in schedules, change in family habits, and witnessing the stress their trusted adults are experiencing. Please consider these practices to support our children:
  • Eliminate the exposure to any type of news or social media discussing the Pandemic with children.
  • Understand that challenging behaviors may be coming from a place of fear and change.
  • Talk to them in a way they can understand.
  • Stay vigilant but don't panic.
  • Model responsible hygiene practices.
  • Provide consistent structure and routine to the day.
  • Enjoy more family time. This is ultimately what every young child wants and needs - more quality time with their loved ones.

Statewide Moratorium on Evictions
On March 27, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020. The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts. It also requires tenants to declare in writing, no more than seven days after the rent comes due, that the tenant cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19.
 
The tenant would be required to retain documentation but not required to submit it to the landlord in advance. And the tenant would remain obligated to repay full rent in a timely manner and could still face eviction after the enforcement moratorium is lifted. The order takes effect immediately, and provides immediate relief to tenants for whom rent is due on April 1st.

A copy of the Governor’s executive order can be found here and the text of the order can also be found here.
