CDC issues new eviction ban for most of US through Oct. 3
WASHINGTON (AP/WXXV) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday issued a new moratorium on evictions that would last until October 3, ending some of the political pressure being placed on President Joe Biden.
The new moratorium could help keep millions in their homes as the coronavirus’ delta variant has spread and states have been slow to release federal rental aid.
The eviction ban will be targeted at areas of the country experiencing high levels of coronavirus infections and will last for 60 days until Oct. 3. The protection could cover around 90% of renters.
The CDC’s original eviction ban, which had been in effect since September 2020, expired on July 31.
