Evictions: A statewide order from the Florida Supreme Court has put evictions on hold. The Pinellas County Clerk of Courts will stop issuing “Writs of Possession,” which are the last step of the eviction process that removes people from their residences. Under the order, people won’t be removed through at least April 17, or until the state Supreme Court lifts the order. However, the court order doesn’t reverse the eviction. Pools Public pools are also ordered to close under the county “Safer at Home” policy. Pools attached to single-family homes may stay open. Shared pools attached to apartment and condominium complexes are closed.
