SLO County COVID-19-Related Ordinances and Orders

The order also temporarily suspends “no fault” evictions. These changes are explained in more detail below.

The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office also issued a statement stating local sheriffs would not be enforcing residential evictions until May 31, 2020.
