  1. Limiting relief to single family mortgagors and residential tenants;

  2. Limiting relief to proceedings solely arising from non-payment by single family mortgagors and residential tenants affected COVID-19.

  3. Clarifying that all payments are due when an individual is no longer adversely affected by COVID-19.
