Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office Suspends Evictions During Coronavirus Pandemic

Posted By: Wesley Masters News ,

MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. — The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office has decided to suspend court-ordered evictions during the coronavirus pandemic, according to officials.

The suspension is currently until April 17 of this year.

This is a result of not only the state declaring a State of Emergency but the county as well. Within the recent week many have lost their jobs due to businesses temporarily closing as a result of new initiatives to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff McFadden responded to this decision by saying:

“Removing people from their homes during this crisis is simply not in the best interest of our community or public safety. I hope that this temporary delay of evictions will provide some relief to those facing hardships as we weather this pandemic.”
