CDC Extension of Eviction Moratorium to March 31, 2021
On January 29, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an Order extending the eviction moratorium to March 31, 2021. The updated Order is available here. The Order continues to ban evictions for certain renters under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 264) and 42 CFR § 70.2. As described in the Order, tenants qualifying as a “Covered Person” cannot be evicted for nonpayment of rent when a declaration under the penalty of perjury is provided to their landlord. Residents who previously submitted a declaration should not be asked to resubmit and should have continued protections until March 31, 2021.
