Gov. David Ige confirmed today during a press conference that the state’s eviction moratorium will end as planned on Friday.
Ige said he doesn’t know what effect the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s extension of the federal eviction moratorium will have on Hawaii. The CDC announced on Tuesday that it was extending the federal moratorium until Oct. 3 and that the ban covers counties with ‘substantial and high levels’ of virus transmissions and would cover areas where 90% of the U.S. population lives.
Hawaii renters will have a 30-day pause on evictions after receiving an eviction notice, and Ige urged both renters and landlords to contact their local mediation centers about their rights.
