Covid-19 is having a devastating affect on small businesses, employees, self-employed,  parents and non-salaried employees.  Cancelling rent and mortgage payments for the duration of the Covid-19 virus pandemic would relieve financial pressure, allow people to stay home from work without the added concern of losing their housing and limit the spread of the virus.  Our government should act in a similar fashion to Italy's and mandate the suspension of rent and mortgage payments during the Coronavirus pandemic.

This would take so much pressure of people who are scared to stay off work because of their Bills that need to be paid to keep a roof over their heads. And may even on the long run reduce the possible spread by more feeling they can take time off without the worry of losing their homes due to unpaid rent and mortgages. Something needs to be done to help with this . Waiting for benefits isn’t going to stop people losing their homes, especially when there will be so many claiming at once causing delay in payments plus the amount doesn’t cover anywhere near what is needed to pay their rent and mortgage.
