Coronavirus-era calls for eviction moratorium in Massachusetts inch closer to reality

“We need a moratorium immediately,” says Gladys Vega, Executive Director of the Chelsea Collaborative. “Tenants are being put into a panic by notices to vacate and letters from the courts. If we’re going to stop the spread of COVID-19 in places like Chelsea we need people to stay home. That won’t happen if they think they’re going to be thrown out.”
