CDC extends through July 31, 2021, a temporary moratorium halting residential evictions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today released for publication in the Federal Register an agency order that extends through July 31, 2021, a temporary moratorium halting residential evictions. The CDC order is intended to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

Today’s order halting residential evictions is effective July 1, 2021, through July 31, 2021.

This order thus further extends a temporary eviction moratorium order that was scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021. The CDC stated the reasons for extending the temporary halt order on residential evictions—including household crowding and COVID-19 transmission, and the increased risk of individuals sheltering in close quarters.
