CDC Shares Eviction Protection Info
The HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) homelessness team would like to share the following message with you from our partners in HHS’s Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs on resources for eviction prevention for renters: We are writing to you to share information about the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) eviction protection declaration. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed a declaration determining that the evictions of tenants could be detrimental to public health control measures to slow the spread of SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The temporary halt in residential evictions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 order can be found here.
