“On February 28, 2023, the state of California finally declared the end of its Covid-19 emergency orders. In 2020, the imposition of the shelter-in-place regime made headlines across the nation, but its end has been barely noticed. By now, even in the deep-blue California cities, most people have given up on living in a state of emergency. Instead, we’ve settled on a new normal. One seldom discussed feature of the coronavirus ’emergency’ architecture was the passage of laws governing the relationship between tenants and landlords.” (03/08/23)
