Eviction Moratorium Extension


Mayor Durkan has officially announced the January 15, 2022 extension of Eviction Moratorium for residential and commercial evictions and continuation of additional COVID-related protections.

Through Executive Order 2021-07: COVID- 19 (Civil Emergency- Extensions of City Closures and Relief Measure) city departments are directed to further extend their actions to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and to mitigate the impact of the public health emergency on the people of Seattle.

This marks the sixth extension of the eviction moratorium as part of the COVID-19 civil emergency since March 14, 2020, when Seattle declared one of the first eviction moratoriums in the country.
