Governor Sisolak signs Emergency Directive related to eviction moratorium extension, additional guidance issued

CARSON CITY, NV - March 31, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed and issued Emergency Directive 043, which formalizes the extension on the State eviction moratorium, announced yesterday.

Updated guidance to conform with the latest Directive is now available as well.

As announced yesterday, the State moratorium is extended until the end of May. The CDC announced the extension of the federal evictions moratorium Monday. The goal of the State extension is to allow for the counties and courts to offer faster help in the forms of eviction mediation or rental assistance when notices are filed. The state moratorium will not be extended past the end of May.

"Our State is currently going through a largescale transition period as we continue to navigate the ever-evolving pandemic and subsequent crises. Kids are back in school, we are in the process of transitioning mitigation authority to local governments, and people are heading back to their workplaces,” said Gov. Sisolak. “The transition process for each of these areas has been strategic—and Nevada’s housing situation is no different. We must transition out of our eviction moratorium, but do so in a way that protects tenants and landlords to the greatest extent possible."

A copy of the Directive and updated guidance is attached to this email and can be found online at nvhealthresponse.nv.gov.
