Debt Collection Restrictions and Assistance During Coronavirus Quarantine

On March 27, 2020, the Massachusetts Attorney General  issued an emergency regulation that prohibits many consumer debt collection activities for a period of ninety days. The prohibitions include court appearances, other in-person contacts, repossessions, filing new lawsuits, and unsolicited collection calls. In addition, the National Consumer Law Center has assembled helpful information for consumers coping with debt collection and other financial pressures during the crisis.
