CDC Extends Order Regarding Evictions

Director Walensky signs extension through the end of March.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced at the end of last month an extension of the health order regarding evictions. Director Rochelle Walensky signed the extension, effective through March 31, 2021, to the effect that evictions due to the inability to pay rent or housing payments “could be detrimental to public health control measures to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2.”

The release from the CDC stated, “Despite extensive mitigation efforts, COVID-19 continues to spread in America at a concerning pace. The pandemic has also exacerbated underlying issues of housing insecurity for many Americans. Keeping people in their homes and out of congregate settings — like shelters — is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Director Walensky as she leads the CDC.
  • That God would use the Department of Health and Human Services to protect Americans’ wellbeing.
  • For God’s provision for those who are unable to make housing payments.
