All Arizona counties covered by new eviction moratorium

Narrower 60-day ban announced Tuesday after previous federal moratorium expired

High rates of COVID-19 transmission across all Arizona counties means that a new evictions moratorium issued by President Joe Biden effectively applies to the entire state.

The narrower 60-day ban was announced Tuesday after the previous federal moratorium expired over the weekend.

The new moratorium applies to counties with high rates of viral transmission, reflecting where the Centers for Disease Control and Protection recommends vaccinated people wear masks indoors and in public.

Local court officials say metro Phoenix saw typical eviction activity Monday after the earlier moratorium expired.

The imposition of a new evictions ban has angered Arizona struggling landlords.
