  1. Demonstrate that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 has impacted them;
  2. Within 30 days after the date that the rent is due, provide to the landlord written notice of inability to pay rent due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 impact, with supporting documentation.

Under the Camarillo Coronavirus/COVID-19 eviction moratorium, impacts include:

  1. Contracting Coronavirus/COVID-19;
  2. Income disruption via layoff, wage or hour reduction, business closure, or other income reduction resulting from Coronavirus/COVID-19; or,
  3. Extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses related to Coronavirus/COVID-19.

Supporting documentation likely includes, paystubs, time cards, proof of out-of-pocket medical expenses related to Coronavirus/COVID-19, proof of medical care or quarantine, employer notes, or doctors citing the Coronavirus/COVID-19.
