MADISON — Governor Tony Evers, on Friday, March 27, directed Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary designee Andrea Palm to temporarily order the suspension of evictions and foreclosures amid the COVID19 public health emergency.
The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for any reason unless failure to proceed with the eviction will result in an imminent threat of serious physical harm to another person and mortgagees from commencing civil action to foreclose on real estate for 60 days. Wisconsinites who are able to continue to meet their financial obligations are urged to do so. This order does not in any way relieve a person's obligation to pay their rent or mortgages.
