USA: The eviction ban has been extended for two months

The extension of the moratorium is expected to give time to the $ 46.5 billion that Congress has decided to distribute to tenants.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the main US federal public health agency, has decided to extend for six days the ban on evictions of tenants due to unpaid debts because they are directly or indirectly affected by the new pandemic.

This mandate of the CDC will expire on October 3. The head of the Democratic parliamentary group in the Senate, Chuck Sumer, said in a statement that he “excludes” the organization for this decision, which practically concerns 90% of the USA.

Some 15 million people in 6.5 million households owe more than $ 20 billion in rent, according to a recent study.

In September 2020, the CDC mandated a moratorium on evictions, after the previous one approved by Congress expired. In June, the CDC extended the ban for another month. The decision expired at midnight on Saturday.
