Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has extended the pause on evictions and foreclosure into October.
The eviction and foreclosure moratorium was put in place to help relieve some of the financial pressure people are facing now that COVID-19 has hampered the economy. The eviction hiatus began on April 20.
The moratorium was set to expire on Aug. 18, now it will end on Oct. 17.
