    Expulsion.  You tell them what is expected, in writing.  You tell them failing they keeping up with financial and work responsibility in the house, they will be considered in breach of contract and they will be removed.   Now we both know that, especially during the Chinese weaponized flu, it is very difficult to remove a tenant.   You can however make them willingly leave.  If they leave a mess in the kitchen, pick it up, place it in the middle of their (probably unmade) bed with a not explaining that they "forgot to clean this up".  Everything they leave out, and in the way, place on their bed.   The when they complain explain how sorry you are and that it will never happen again as long as they clean up their onw mess at the time they make it.  Training a room mate is like training a puppy.  You keep punishing the mistakes until the animal leans not to make the mistakes.
