CDC Issues New Eviction Moratorium
by Jim Bea Sampaga
With the national eviction moratorium that expired on July 31, the Biden administration issues a new moratorium that will potentially save millions from being kicked out of their homes.
Issued on August 3, the two-month eviction moratorium by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will cover parts of the country that are experiencing substantial and high spread of the COVID-19.
CDC’s moratorium order says evictions would “likely exacerbate the increase in cases.”
Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz said this will also help residents make ends meet.
“No one should be kicked out of their home during a pandemic because they can’t afford their rent. These extensions will stop evictions for thousands of Hawai‘i residents struggling to make ends meet – a necessary step taken by the Biden Administration and the right thing to do.”
The new eviction moratorium will expire on October 3.
