When you are served a 10 day eviction, is the first day the day the notice is dated?

For example, you get a notice around 2:00 PM on the 15th, is the 15th counted as the first day?

The date you are served does not count towards the 10 days.  The first day will begin after the day your are served.  If you are served on a Monday, for example, the first day to be counted would be Tuesday.
