It is illegal for a landlord to give you an eviction notice or a notice of violation for nonpayment of rent, non-payment of fees, or non-payment of utilities between now and June 30, 2020. If you cannot pay your rent now, you will still need to pay it back eventually (June 30, 2020 for Oregonians or September 17, 2020 for Beaverton residents).
