All Committee meetings will be held via conference call during this time. 

County COVID-19 Eviction Statuses - 

Duval County: No Evictions or Writs of Posession will be completed until April 3rd. 

Clay County: Mostly business as usual, however, the writs are issued on a case by case basis.

St. Johns County: All but essential court business is closed. 

Flagler County: As of today (3/20/20) the court is issuing writs of possession, however, the Sheriff's Department is unsure if writs will be served. For now they are holding them and waiting on a memo from the Chief to clarify. 

Nassau County: They are still issuing writs of possession.

Putnam County: They are only issuing writs of possession on a case by case basis. 

Note: If the county court has an e filing system, then they will still accept any filing for eviction. However, it depends on the courts operation at that time as some may then just place it on hold.

CDC Guidance as of 3/15/2020

Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.

Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.

Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populationshand hygiene, and social distancing.  When feasible, organizers could modify events to be virtual.

This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning, or businesses. This recommendation is made in an attempt to reduce introduction of the virus into new communities and to slow the spread of infection in communities already affected by the virus.  This recommendation is not intended to supersede the advice of local public health officials.

With the situation evolving rapidly, we will continue to engage health and security authorities on any planned or anticipated measures that may impact events.
