CDC Extends Nationwide Eviction Moratorium for 30 Days

On Thursday, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky issued an extension of the nationwide eviction moratorium, preventing the eviction of residential tenants who are unable to make rental payments. Recall, the CDC last fall issued the nationwide eviction moratorium as a way to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings, such as homeless shelters, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The nationwide moratorium was initially set to expire on June 30, 2021. With Thursday’s 30-day extension, the moratorium will now last through July 31, 2021. According to the CDC, Thursday’s extension is intended to be the final extension of the eviction moratorium.
