New CDC Director Rochelle Wallensky extends eviction ban at least until March 31 due to COVID-19


On his first day as MD of Rochelle Wallensky, the new Director of Disease Control (CDC), MD is already a big step forward.

Valenski announced on Twitter on Wednesday night that she would extend the eviction ban to the end of March, due to the economic impact of COVID-19.

This effect, she said in a statement, “has also triggered a housing affordability crisis that adversely affects some communities.”

“As a protective public health measure, I will extend the current order to stop residential evictions until at least March 31, 2021,” she said.

The same night, the CDC issued a projection that by February 13, 508,000 coronovirus-related deaths could be reported.

“Despite widespread mitigation efforts, COVID-19 is spreading at an accelerated pace in the US,” Wallensky said.

“We must work to reduce matters and keep people in their homes and out of individual coagulation – such as shelters – where COVID-19 can help establish an even stronger foothold,” she continued.
