California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order Friday with a wide range of statewide measures related to COVID-19, including extending eviction moratoriums and mail-in license renewals.

The order extends the authorization for local governments to halt evictions for renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through July 28, a measure that the city of Berkeley used to issue an eviction moratorium March 20. Newsom also authorized the state Department of Motor Vehicles to continue mail-in renewals for ID cards and licenses.

Teachers in training who were unable to complete a Teaching Performance Assessment before schools closed due to COVID-19 will still be able to earn their credentials this year, as Newsom also suspended the assessment requirement.

Additionally, child care and after-school programs are now able to serve children of essential infrastructure workers, as provided by Newsom’s order, and the order loosens certain requirements for grant funding received from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
