TESTING CENTERS

Call your healthcare provider if you are experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath and have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone known to have COVID-19. It is important that you call first so they can evaluate your risk and determine if they need to see you in person so that other patients are not potentially put at risk.

There are also a number of urgent cares, emergency rooms, etc. that are testing. It is important that you call first so they can evaluate your risk and determine if they need to see you in person so that other patients are not potentially put at risk.

HOUSING CONCERNS

The Texas Supreme Court has halted all evictions until late April. Until then, a tenant in Texas CANNOT be evicted.

CARES Act Eviction Protection
The CARES Act, signed into law Mar. 27, 2020, provides 120 days of eviction relief for tenants in federally-backed housing. Specifically, you may not be served with an eviction notice until July 25, 2020 and the notice must give you 30 days to leave the property (Aug. 24, 2020).

During the 120-day eviction moratorium, your landlord may not charge you late fees, penalties, or other charges for paying your rent late. It’s important to note that the eviction moratorium does not relieve you of your obligation to pay your rent. It merely forbids your landlord from evicting you during that period for late payment.

The temporary moratorium on eviction filings pertains to any rental housing that is Covered under section 41411 of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (34 U.S.C. 12491(a); or Covered by the rural housing voucher program under section 542 of the Housing Act of 1949 (42 U.S.C. 1490r); or Has a Federally backed mortgage or multifamily mortgage loan.

CARES Act Tenant-Based Rental Assistance
In terms of help with paying your rent, the CARES Act provides the Department of Housing and Urban Development with an additional $17.4 billion in funding including monies for rent assistance, housing vouchers, public housing, and housing for the elderly. For help contact HUD Rental Assistance.
