On August 3, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Temporary Halt in Residential Evictions in Communities with Substantial or High Levels of Community Transmission of COVID-19 to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19 (the Order). The Order imposed a temporary national moratorium on most evictions for nonpayment of rent in counties with high rates of community transmission to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The Order applied to all standard rental housing, including mobile homes or land in a mobile home park. However, it did not cover individuals renting hotels, motels, or other guest homes rented temporarily. The Order ended on August 26, 2021 and is no longer in effect.

More details about the Order can be found on the CDC website.
