The United States Government through the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has extended the current order temporarily halting residential evictions until at least March 31, 2021, to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The CDC Director, Rochelle Walensky disclosed this on her official social platform on Thursday, she said despite extensive mitigation efforts, COVID-19 continues to spread in America at a concerning pace.

According to her, “We must act to get cases down and keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings like shelters where COVID-19 can take an even stronger foothold.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to our nation’s health. It has also triggered a housing affordability crisis that disproportionately affects some communities”, she said.
