Locals groups such as The Public Justice Center, Baltimore Renters United and other community advocates are urging that evictions be halted during this spike. An attorney for the Public Justice Center, Matt Hill spoke on halting evictions. “We see how evictions further the spread of COVID-19. If tenants are evicted, they are forced to live in close quarters, in shelters, doubled up with family or friends or on the streets. You cannot quarantine or stay home if you have no home.”
