  Section 1.  For the purposes of this act,  "COVID-19  covered  period"
means  March 7, 2020 until the date on which none of the provisions that
closed or otherwise restricted public or private businesses or places of
public accommodation, or required postponement or  cancellation  of  all
non-essential  gatherings  of  individuals of any size for any reason in
executive order  numbers  202.3,  202.4,  202.5,  202.6,  202.7,  202.8,

tive order, issued in response to  the  COVID-19  pandemic  continue  to
apply in the county where the real property is situated.
  §  2.  Notwithstanding  any  general or special law, or any local law,
ordinance, resolution, or city or county charter to  the  contrary,  for
the duration of the COVID-19 covered period, at local option and after a
public  hearing,  any  village,  town,  city, school district, or county
which conducts tax foreclosures or tax lien sales may pass a  local  law
or  resolution to place a moratorium on such tax lien sales or tax fore-
closures for a period of up to five years  after  the  COVID-19  covered
period;  provided  however, that, consistent with the limitation of this
section, any such local law or resolution shall establish  a  date  upon
