[ARCHIVED] CDC Issues Temporary Halt on Residential Evictions Through December 31, 2020

temporary halt on evictions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an Order (under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act) that temporarily halts residential evictions in an effort to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 through December 31, 2020.

To invoke the CDC's order, persons must provide an executed copy of the Declaration form (or a similar declaration under penalty of perjury) to their landlord, owner of the residential property where they live, or other person who has a right to have them evicted or removed from where they live. Each adult listed on the lease, rental agreement, or housing contract should likewise complete and provide a declaration. Unless the CDC order is extended, changed, or ended, the order prevents these persons from being evicted or removed from where they are living through December 31, 2020. 

These persons are still required to pay rent and follow all the other terms of their lease and rules of the place where they live. These persons may also still be evicted for reasons other than not paying rent or making a housing payment. Executed declarations should not be returned to the Federal Government.
