CDC is issuing a new order Temporarily Protecting from Eviction | Under the guidance of the Biden Administration;
CDC is issuing a new order temporarily halting evictions in counties with heightened levels of community transmission in order to respond to recent, unexpected developments in the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the rise of the Delta variant.
- The Biden administration on Tuesday announced a new ban on evictions for many renters just days after the White House allowed a nationwide moratorium to expire, infuriating progressive House Democrats who warned that millions of Americans could lose their homes.
- Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention drafted a new eviction moratorium aimed at protecting tenants in counties with “substantial and high levels of community transmission” of COVID-19, affecting roughly 90% of the U.S. population.
- The two-month moratorium expires Oct. 3.
