Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced a national eviction moratorium for virtually all tenants in the U.S to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The order will be in effect until December 31, 2020. This declaration is for tenants, lessees, or residents of residential properties who are covered by the CDC’s order temporarily halting residential evictions (not including foreclosures on home mortgages) to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

Under the CDC’s order, you must provide a copy of this declaration to your landlord, owner of the residential property where you live, or another person who has a right to have you evicted or removed from where you live. The order, unless changed, prevents you from being evicted or removed from where you are living through December 31, 2020.

You are still required to pay rent and follow all the other terms of your lease and the rules of the place where you live. You may also still be evicted for reasons other than not paying rent or making a housing payment.

National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (CAPACD) translated the CDC’s national eviction moratorium declaration and created infographics into many Asian and Pacific Islander’s languages.
