Gov. Ron DeSantis extended the pause on evictions and foreclosures for Florida residents until July 1.

DeSantis announced the extension Tuesday. The limited extension aims to help residents who suffered pay cuts or job loss because of business closings caused by the coronavirus.

In a Twitter post, DeSantis said, “We are committed to getting Floridians back on their feet as we move forward with our Safe, Smart, Step-by-Step plan for Florida’s recovery.”

The original order, issued April 2, was expected to expire May 17. The order was later extended until June 2.

Now, the regulation is extended until midnight July 1.
