CDC Extends Federal Ban on Evictions to June 30

Previously, the CDC warned the number of people evicted could cause a rise in the cases of coronavirus approaching Fall 2020, which led to them extending the ban on evictions until the end of 2020. Now, news surfaced noting the CDC has extended the ban under the Biden Administration until June 30.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky issued a statement, saying, “The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to the nation’s public health. Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings — like homeless shelters — by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

According to reports, the CDC’s eviction ban applies to people who earn under $99,000 a year, as well as couples who earn under $198,000. Along with that, for renters to qualify, they have to declare to their landlord that they are unable to afford rent and that being evicted will cause them to be homeless or have to live with others.
