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