On Friday, April 3, 2020, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey issued the 6th supplemental proclamation to her State of Emergency Proclamation. The supplement is to protect against evictions and foreclosures during the COVID-19 outbreak and will last for the duration of the state of emergency that was declared on March 13.
The protective order reads. “Because COVID-19 mitigation efforts require people to remain at their place of residence, I find that it would promote safety and protection of the civilian population to grant temporary relief from residential evictions and foreclosures. To that end: All state, county, and local law enforcement officers are hereby directed to cease enforcement of any order that would result in the displacement of a person from his or her place of residence. Nothing in this section shall be construed as relieving any individual of the obligation to pay rent, to make mortgage payments, or to comply with any other obligation that an individual may have under a rental agreement or mortgage.” Please read the full order posted below or on the Governor's wesbtie at here.
The 6th supplemental order to protect against evictions was issued the same day Governor Ivey issued a Stay-At-Home Order which requires every person in Alabama to stay at his or her place of residence except as necessary to perform essential activities. The Stay-At-Home Order will be effective beginning today Saturday, April 4, at 5:00 p.m. and will expire Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.
