CDC issues moratorium on eviction
This month, the Center for Disease Control issued a moratorium on evictions in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Mass evictions could cause individuals and families to become homeless, creating a need for congregate shelters or causing them to double up with family and friends. Both would increase the likelihood that the coronavirus would spread. Stable housing allows people with the virus to self-isolate, protects vulnerable populations and allows for social distancing. At a time when tens of millions of Americans are unemployed and unable to pay the rent, this order comes just in time.
