No. Under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s order, tenants who want to be protected from eviction must provide a declaration to their landlords, owners of the residential property where they live, or other people who have a right to have them evicted.

The order, which is in effect from September 4 through December 31, 2020, prohibits a landlord, owner of a residential property, or other person with a legal right to pursue eviction from evicting any covered person for nonpayment of rent. A covered person is a tenant, lessee, or resident of a residential property.
